Howard's way: northern neighbours, western friends

18 Aug 2005
Description

In Griffith REVIEW 9, 'Up North: Myths, Threats & Enchantment', Michael Wesley analyses the genesis of Prime Minister Howard's foreign policy ideas and finds that his attitudes, pragramatic engagement and respect for cultural difference are a product of his youth - especially his Methodist upbringing - rather than wartime propaganda or Cold War rhetoric. Wesley argues that this has given the prime minister more flexibility in dealing with the region than could have been predicted.
