Summary Many scholars have traced the events and issues which accompanied the postwar decline in the British Empire and the changing nature of the Australian-British relationship. Most tell the story through a complex narrative of shifting foreign, defence and economic policies from the real separation between Australia and Britain occurred, when Britain tried unsuccessfully to enter the European Economic Community and when Australia assisted the United States at war in Vietnam. Others attempt to tell the story of the end of empire through intricate constitutional and legal discussions. But the real separation between Australia and Britain was far more complex and nuanced than it is possible to adequately explain, as David Lowe argues here.
