Australia: In the Emerging Global Order: Evolving Australia-India Relations

D. Gopal (Editor)
Synopsis At the dawn of the new millennium, Australia is at crossroads seeking redefinition of its identity. Its traditional commitment to the Western alliance system with its recently evolving inclination to seek an identity in the Asia-Pacific has placed the island country in a bind. Overarching these are the forces of globalisation that impinge on past norms of geography and politics seeking revisions in its policies and postures. Poised thus on the "hinges of history", Australia’s "true place" in the comity of nations is yet to be etched anew. Australia’s emerging socio-political architecture with its pronounced accent on multiculturalism has drawn the attention of a number of countries including importantly India. In the fast changing international scenario after all, it is in India’s interest to discover areas of potential engagement with countries where there are prospects of a mutually beneficial relationship. The range of themes discussed in this volume is an evidence of the heightened awareness and interest an Australia among Indian academics. The book captures the essences of the Indian outlook and perspectives on Australia and offers insights into Australia’s policies and initiatives in respect of the great powers, the Asia-Pacific region and India. It is a very useful book for students and research scholars on Australia as well as for those interested in understanding the region in today’s global scenario.
