The continued expansion of the United States involvement in Southeast Asia places a special emphasis on her relations with Australia. The objectives of peace and security in the region are shared by both nations. If the United States were able to find a way to increase Australias military participation in the region it would be to their mutual benefit. This thesis examines three possible alternatives that the United States could follow to increase Australias participation in the current conflict. It concludes that the only one that will permit Australia to make sizable increases in its military commitment in the next decade would be for the United States to assume greater responsibility for the security of the Australian Continent so as to permit the deployment of more Australian forces to Southeast Asia.
