Losing the Blanket: Australia and the End of Britain’s Empire by David Goldsworthy soon to be available at the excellent BookLovers of Bath web site!
Published: Melbourne: Melbourne University Press, 2002, Paperback.
>From the cover: In the 1960s, Britain dissolved almost all of its formal empire as part of a general effort to renovate its world role. British decolonisation and its aftermath had implications for Australian policies in the key areas of defence in Southeast Asia, the politics of the Commonwealth, the European Union and Australias own colonial policy and the bilateral relationship with Britain itself. The second part of the story tells how Britain and Australia re-established their relationship on a new footing.
