Parties Long Estranged: Canada and Australia in the Twentieth Century

Margaret MacMillan, Francine McKenzie
UBC Press, 2003 - 288 páginas

This book brings together recent and original work to illuminate comparisons and contrasts between two former colonies of the British Empire. The contributors include some of the top names in history and political science in Canada and Australia. They cover the entire twentieth century and examine different aspects of Canadian-Australian relations, including trade, civil aviation, and military, constitutional, imperial, and diplomatic relations. The comparisons include Aboriginal rights, nation building, middle powers, and attitudes toward the Empire.

This timely volume is well situated in the field of comparative studies, a new and growing area. It will be of interest to students and scholars of foreign affairs, the British Commonwealth and its dismantling, constitutional history, and international relations.
