Paul Keating has staked much on his attempt to redefine Australia's relationship with Asia. Whatever his motives for doing so, his statements on Australia's need to 'come to terms with', or to 'become part of' Asia, have opened up the debate on how Australia should reconcile its history with its geography. In this special Into Asia? supplement, we analyse some of the questions raised by the arrival of 'Asia' on the mainstream domestic political agenda.
