Brief description How has Australia used the American Alliance to further its own national interests? This project has a special significance for how Australians understand the history of their country's relationship with the United States and the origins of Australia's comprehensive engagement with Asia. The delicate task of balancing close ties with both the United States and Asia, especially China, is seen as the central foreign policy challenge facing Australia today. Analysis of the history behind this present predicament extends our understanding and interpretation of Australia's role in this region and the world. It will show the continued relevance of the past to the choices that face current policy-makers.
