More About This Textbook

Overview

This is the first book which examines Australia's external relations from a political-geographical perspective. It stresses above all the changing orientation of these relationships towards the Asia-Pacific region. It takes a realistic perspective, emphasising the internal relationships among environment, society, economy and politics in a spatial context.
Audience: This volume is of particular interest to political geographers, specialists in foreign affairs and international relations, but it is also aimed at business people, diplomats and general readers.
