Book review of "Australia and China at 40"

19 February 2013

"Australia and China at 40", edited by China Studies Centre members James Reilly and Jingdong Yuan was reviewed by US Studies Centre Research Associate Tom Switzer in the Age and Sydney Morning Herald.

"Australia's leading trading partner is not a democracy," write James Reilly and Jingdong Yuan, "but rather a one-party authoritarian state with a fast-growing economy, a rapidly modernising military and global ambition."

The book was launched by Senator Bob Carr at Parliament House, Canberra last year.
