226 indexed pages. This edited volume links selected international relations (IR) issues to various dimensions of Australian foreign policy. It represents one of the first efforts to integrate specifically Australian-based thinking about such diverse global problems into a readily understandable guide of how they will affect our lives in the early twenty-first century. Such emerging challenges as globalisation, human rights, and environmental politics are considered in conjunction with more traditional butno less significant policy questions of alliance politics and arms control. Most of the issues considered in this book are also considered in light of enduring theoretical questions that continue to dominate the IR field, such as the realist-liberal debate and how 'national interest' is factored into policy formulation.
