Fraser's Foreign Policy: The first twelve months

Joseph A. Camilleri, 'Fraser's Foreign Policy: The first twelve months', Current Affairs Bulletin, 53(8), January 1977, 4-15.

The performance of the Fraser administration in its first year of office has merely confirmed the postion which the conservative parties had espoused during three years of opposition and the preceding 23 years of government. There is certainly no evidence that Australia's current policy makers ahve recongnised the monumental error of moral and political judgment which characterised for more than two decades Australian participation in the American containment strategy in Asia.
