The great crises that threaten Australia's national prosperity come from abroad. So do the grandest opportunities. But in Australian politics the big matters are commonly crowded out by the small. International policy is used for domestic point-scoring. Leaders are criticised for travelling beyond the water's edge. Measured against its potential today and its needs tomorrow, Australia is seriously underperforming. It is wasting valuable opportunities to strengthen its position and help shape the world.Drawing on exclusive interviews with prime ministers, foreign ministers and other policy-makers, Gold Walkley award-winning journalist peter Hartcher argues Australia needs to shake off its 'provincial reflex' and become a mature player in global affairs.'One of the most formidable intellects in journalism.' The Saturday Paper
