Rain Dancing: Sanctions in Canadian and Australian Foreign Policy

Front Cover
University of Toronto Press, 1994 - History - 323 pages
0 Reviews
Nossal contends that because Canada and Australia lack the economic capabilities that give the sanctions of major powers their bite, the sanctions of these middle powers accomplish little but make the public feel that something is being done about a serious problem. In support of this view Nossal presents six case studies of Canadian and Australian sanctions episodes from the 1970s to the early 1990s, against China, Indonesia, Iraq, the former Soviet Union, South Africa, and Vietnam.
