Synopses & Reviews
Delving deep into Australias international relations, this book looks at the government of Prime Minister Howard, exposing his extreme attempt to court the United States as an ally and its dire effect on the nation's security, future prosperity, and cultural values. Three expert academics examine trade deals on uranium, agriculture, and defense, showing how Australia is being undermined by its own leaders. They also offer a compelling explanation of this pattern of betrayal.
