How Australia can manage the American relationship

 Australia is an independent sovereign nation, at least in principle


For its first century since 1901 we've engaged as a 'middle level power' in ongoing relationships with other nations - both in this region and the world


These relationships included close links with major powers of the time - initially Britain (from a colonial history), later the USA


 Let's compare our two countries - what we share, how we differ :

+ background history

+ basic statistics

+ how we differ


 How goes the relationship ?

+ opinions, for and against


 Where to now ?

+ how we can go forward
