              2007 was a year to remember in Australian politics. If you think you know what really happened during that tumultuous year behind the closed doors of the Liberal Party, in the back rooms of the ACTU and deep in the campaign war room of the Labor Party, think again. This is the st...ory of that year.

              China is a key nation for Australia's future - for our security, economy and identity. But what are China's intentions when it comes to Australia? And what lies behind the recent chill in relations between the two countries? In this gripping book, Peter Hartcher shows how Austral...ia woke up to China's challenge and explores what comes next. Will we see a further deterioration in relations, or is there a smarter way to deal with an authoritarian superpower? Hartcher shines new light on Beijing's overt and covert campaign for influence - over trade and defence, media and politics. And he looks at the Australian response so far and assesses its effectiveness. 'For all its power, China is neither all-powerful nor irresistible. Australia can shape its engagement with Beijing ... History is forcing us out of our complacency. Whenever Australia is asked to choose between China and America, the ultimate answer must be that we choose Australia.' -Peter Hartcher, Red Zone

              The great crises that threaten Australia's national prosperity come from abroad. So do the grandest opportunities. But in Australian politics the big matters are commonly crowded out by the small. International policy is used for domestic point-scoring. Leaders are criticised for... travelling beyond the water's edge. Measured against its potential today and its needs tomorrow, Australia is seriously underperforming. It is wasting valuable opportunities to strengthen its position and help shape the world. Drawing on exclusive interviews with prime ministers, foreign ministers and other policymakers, Gold Walkley award - winning journalist peter Hartcher argues Australia needs to shake off its 'provincial reflex' and become a mature participant in global affairs.

              China has become a key nation for Australia's future - for our security, economy and identity. But what are China's intentions and strategy when it comes to Australia? In this gripping account, Peter Hartcher shows that we are entering an era of undeclared contestation, whether f...or hearts and minds, mineral and agricultural resources, media outlets or sea lanes. Reactions include panic, xenophobia and all-the-way-with-the-USA - but the challenge now is to think hard about the national interest and respond with wisdom to a changed world. This urgent, authoritative essay blends reporting and analysis in trademark Hartcher style, and covers the local scene as well as the larger geopolitical picture.

              China has become a key nation for Australia's future - for our security, economy and identity. But what are China's intentions when it comes to Australia? In this gripping account, Peter Hartcher shows how Beijing stepped up its campaign for influence, over hearts and minds, mine...ral and agricultural resources, media outlets and sea lanes. Reactions have included panic, xenophobia and all-the-way-with-the-USA - but the challenge now is to think hard about the national interest and respond with wisdom to a changed world. This urgent, authoritative essay blends reporting and analysis, and covers the local scene as well as the larger geopolitical picture. It casts fresh light on Beijing's plans and actions and outlines a way forward. Australia and China have got rich together. For Australia, that is quite enough. But China's government wants more. As much power and influence over Australia as it can possibly get, using fair means or foul. But what Beijing can get is limited not only by China's abilities but also by Australia's will. In each case where Chinese officials or agents attempted to intrude, they met Australian resistance. And failed. For all its power, China is neither all-powerful nor irresistible. Australia can shape its engagement with Beijing.
