About this book

This book assesses the key factors underlying such Australian-Japanese cooperation and those policy challenges that could impede it. Experts offer critical insights into why their two countries – traditionally the two key 'spokes' in the US bilateral alliance network spanning Asia – are moving toward a security relationship in their own right.
