Quarterly Essay: China, America and Australia’s Future in Asia
In the September Quarterly Essay, Hugh White considers Australia’s place between Beijing and Washington. As the power balance shifts, and China’s influence grows, what might this mean for the nation? In conversation with journalist Rafael Epstein, White considers the shape of the world to come and the implications for Australia as it seeks to carve out a place in the new world order.
Rafael Epstein is a journalist who has worked in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Timor, Indonesia, Europe and the Middle East.
Hugh White is Professor of Strategic Studies and Head of the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre at the Australian National University.
