Will regional powers in the Asia-Pacific have to choose between China and the United States? In Independent Ally, Shannon Tow challenges this prevailing view. She explores how one key regional power, Australia, has repeatedly developed a strong relationship with a rising power while simultaneously preserving its alliance with a dominant global power.
The Hon Kim Beazley AC together with scholars from Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at ANU launched Geography, Power, Strategy and Defence Policy, a series of essays honouring Emeritus Professor Paul Dibb.
Department of Political and Social Change Visiting Fellow, Trevor Wilson, has released a new book – Eyewitness to early reform in Myanmar.
Published by ANU Press, the book provides an ‘on the ground’ account of the sweeping change carried out by a reform-minded faction within the country’s long-ruling military – adjustments that commenced in 1999 with modest experiments, and which eventually led to historic elections in November 2015.
