Australia finds itself in a unique strategic position. Founded as a white settler outpost, the nationâ€™s identity, trade and security all flowed from the imperial connection well into the middle of the twentieth century.

This early experience of dependence naturalised a policy tradition of strategic alliance with the Anglosphere, depending on relationships with â€˜great and powerful friendsâ€™ for the protection of the national interest.
