Book launch for Australia’s Defence: Towards a New Era?
Thursday, 2 October 2014 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm (AEST)
The Strategic and Defence Studies Centre invites you to attend the book launch for Australia’s Defence: Towards a New Era? (published by Melbourne University Press). Almost half a century ago the ANU’s TB Millar penned a seminal book on Australian defence policy. Drawing inspiration from Millar’s original volume, Australia’s Defence: Towards a New Era? brings together leading experts to examine the domestic and international context of Australia’s defence policy, Australian strategy and the size and state of our armed forces.
Launched by: Senator the Hon. David Johnston, Minister for Defence
‘This timely and comprehensive volume leaves future Australian policy-makers with few excuses for getting things wrong’ - Gareth Evans, Australian Foreign minister 1988-1996
‘A thoughtful, informative and easily read single volume on Australia’s defence and strategic context. Beyond informed Australians and scholars, a must-read for the nation’s next defence minister’ – Brendan Nelson, Minister for Defence, 2006-07
Please join us for drinks and canapes following the launch. Copies of the book will also be available for purchase along with opportunities to meet the authors.
Sale of books will be cash only at the special price of $45
