Description

Australia has long been a reliable ally of the United States. But has it become too reliable? Sixty-five years after the signing of the ANZUS treaty, and amid great strategic change caused by the rise of China, it is time for a fresh look at the Australian-American alliance. In Fighting with America, historian James Curran argues that the current intensity in Canberra's relations with Washington has led Americans and Australians to forget past disagreements between the two nations. As the alliance becomes more focused on Asia, Australian and American interests will sometimes coincide - other times they may clash.show more
