Losing The Blanket: Australia and The End of Britain's Empire -by- David Goldsworthy. Australian History. Australian Political History. When Britain's sprawling empire wound down with unexpected speed in the 1960s, Australia lost a comforting "security blanket" and had to struggle to re-establish and protect itself in a volatile and threatening world. This book shows how Australia's foreign policy during the 1950s and 1960s was affected by the end of empire. Documents now available reveal the effects of post-imperialism upon Australian policies in key areas such as defence planning in Southeast Asia, the politics of the Commonwealth, the European Union, Australia's own colonial policy and relations with Britain itself; as Menzies and then Holt looked to protect Australia's interests, the groundwork was laid for Australia's involvement in Vietnam and for the pattern of Australia's foreign relations today. (Melbourne University Press. Melbourne. 2002) ISBN 0522850286. Used book. Softcover book. 209 pages. Corners bumped. Covers scuffed. A few marks on edges of pages. Else very good.
