   schema:description ""Alan Frost places the colonization of Australia in a broad context and shows its relationship to other imperial strategies of the period. Based on twenty-five years research in archives around the world, The Global Reach of Empire offers new perspectives on Pacific exploration, war, imperial planning and the beginnings of modern Australia. It also examines the reasons behind the colonization of Australia, and shows the historical origins of the contemporary idea that the Pacific Rim countries will become the twenty-first century's most important economic area."--Jacket."@en ;
