    Dangerous Allies eBook ¼ Hardcover dangerous epub, allies kindle, Dangerous Allies MOBIThis book is the last word on the debate about Australia's Foreign Policy 'independence' The last word because the case is a bust At heart this book is a ho hum recitation of the long hymn of 'independence' which was sung most prominently and successfully by Fraser's arch rival Gough Whitlam and generations of lefties ever since Now however Fraser has joined them thanks to a good research assistant and with barely an acknowledgement except to claim some of Robert McNamara's legacy for himself the Fog of War admissions not the failing to win Vietnam thingIf you think Australia is too close to the US and want to know the historical justification for such a view this is your book But you probably wouldn't want to consult it to k

    Dangerous Allies eBook ¼ Hardcover dangerous epub, allies kindle, Dangerous Allies MOBIMalcolm Fraser pens a decent argument here for Australia to step away from its historical leanings of being dependent upon world superpowers for its defence and to forge its own way in international affairs Two thirds of this incredibly well researched book is on the history of Australia's defence policy and then the last third left to why we should look to our own defence instead of piggybacking on the biggest kid in the yard What is unfortunately all too obviously missing is the how Australia is realistic
