Beschreibung

This book sets out to discuss what kind of 'middle power' Australia is, and whether its identity as a middle power negatively influences its relationship with Asia. It looks at the history of the middle power concept, develops three concepts of middle power status and examines Australia's relationships with China, Japan and Indonesia as a focus. It argues that Australia is an 'awkward partner' in its relations with Asia due to both its historical colonial and discriminatory past, as well its current dependence upon the United States for a security alliance. It argues this should be changed by adopting a new middle power concept in Australian foreign policy.

Klappentext
This book proposes a fresh approach to identifying states that lay claim to middle powers status in international politics. It focuses on the dependent nature of Australia's middle power imagining which is at the core of the country's foreign policy in the Asia Pacific. It shows how this flawed middle power imagining contributes to Australia's positioning as an awkward partner in its relations with major states in East and Southeast Asia.
