Abstract : The author examines Australia's relationship with its Southeast Asian neighbors. As a European country with a geographic appendage to this region, Australia's relationship with other countries was defined by unpopular policies or within the context of its 'great and powerful friends,' Britain and the United States. However, since withdrawal of British forces and failure of U.S.- led strategies of military intervention in Vietnam, Australia has been forced to come to terms with its geographic realities. Although it remains predominantly an Anglo-Saxon country, Australia is increasingly multicultural, and links to Southeast Asia are growing rapidly.
