Changing Military Dynamics in East Asia: Australia’s Evolving Grand Strategy


  • SHEARER, Andrew


Australia’s geographic isolation, small population, and European roots have led it to make allies of distant yet powerful nations like the United States and the United Kingdom. As power shifts in the Asia-Pacific, Australia’s grand strategy must shift as well to keep it balanced between Western interests and the rise of China and India as major powers.
