Dependent ally: a study in Australian foreign policy
The first substantial evaluation of Australia's postwar relations with its "great and powerful friends," Dependent Ally studies the alliance and dependency--both diplomatic and strategic--between Australia, Great Britain, and the United States. Bell contends that Australia's relations with
Great Britain and America were influenced primarily by the way in which politicians, diplomats, and the military defined "national interest."
