It draws on an extensive survey of how Australian foreign affairs officials think about the world. This fully revised and updated edition includes four new chapters on Australia's security, prosperity, values and its place in the world. It includes two new case studies covering the negotiation of the US-Australia free trade agreement and Australia's regional mission to the Solomon Islands.
