Canberra Papers on Strategy and Defence No. 98

The world has changed more rapidly and more radically in the three years since 1989 than it did in the forty years before that date. This book offers an interim analysis of these changes, from the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War in 1989 and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, up to and including the election of President Clinton in 1992. A special chapter is devoted to their impact on Australia's foreign policy prospects. The changes in Western and Central Europe and the Central Asian Republics, along with their probable impacts on China, Japan and India, are also charted.
