China’s Grand Strategy and Australia’s Future in the New Global Order

Get the Book

‘Australia’s former ambassador to China provides insight on Australia’s future position in global affairs.’ 

Disruption has blown the old world apart. The rise of China, Trump’s America First policies, division within Europe and successful defiance by authoritarian states are affecting the shape of the emerging new order.

Human rights, rule of law, free media and longstanding global institutions all seem set to be weakened. Autocracies are exercising greater control over world affairs.

How we got to here

Webinar 1 December 21 • 6:00pm AEDT

Crikey readers are no stranger to the political prose of Guy Rundle, who has been engaging and challenging our readers since 2007.

Join Crikey’s Charlie Lewis as he chats with Guy Rundle on his new book, which focuses on the past decade in Australia.

The ten years from 2010 to 2020, Guy believes he has witnessed a country changing and fracturing, due to the global wave of populism that has swept across conventional politics, and solidified the culture wars.
