China’s Grand Strategy and Australia’s Future in the New Global Order
Disruption has blown the old world apart. The rise of China, Trump’s America First policies, division within Europe and successful defiance by authoritarian states are affecting the shape of the emerging new order. Human rights, rule of law, free media and longstanding global institutions all seem set to be weakened. Autocracies are exercising greater control over world affairs. Australia will need to engage heightened levels of diplomacy to forge relations with countries of opposing principles. It will need to be agile in pursuing a realistic foreign policy agenda. China’s Grand Strategy and Australia’s Future in the New Global Order contains answers for how Australia must position itself for this possibly dystopian future.
Future generations of Australians, and indeed Asians, will be grateful to Raby for providing timely advice on how to manage a rising China.
In these days of crisis, Raby's rational argument is sorely needed.
A virtuoso masterclass in what is happening to our world and guide to how Australian diplomacy and statecraft can be marshalled to meet it.
