Rachel's Blog: Australia: The New 51st State

Tue, 06 Mar 2007

John Pilger's article in New Stateman is slightly alarmist, but an excellent overview of Australia and John Howard's relationship with the U.S. He sets it into historical context, looking at the idea of the Commonwealth, Menzies' role in sending Australian troops to Vietnam and Murdoch's continuing skillz at stifling dissent.
