The Kingdom and the Quarry: China, Australia, Fear and Greed (David Uren, Black Inc.)
It explores the strange coalitions of left and right that have sought to insulate us from the world economy and the equally unpredictable forces that have embraced it. It is a story of the fights between the protectionists and free traders of the nineteenth century, of our relationships with the US, Britain, Japan and China, and of the rise of Google and Uber.
Yet there is an insecurity about the source of our prosperity coming from somewhere else. Where does the national interest lie, and what issues are at stake?
It is also the rising power in our region. China has rapidly become Australia's most important trading partner. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory More information about this seller Contact this seller.
