Australia’s Defence Minister, Senator the Hon David Johnston, has launched a “must read” new book on the future of Australia’s defence from the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.
In his speech, the minister described Australia’s Defence: towards a new era? as “wonderful”.
Senator Johnston was quick to thank the co-editors Professor Brendan Taylor, Dr Peter Dean and Dr Stephan Fruhling from the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.
“Let me just say to all of the authors of this wonderful book, congratulations.
“Thanks so much for putting the time, the thought, the expertise and the knowledge into producing what is an essential piece of reading for any defence minister,” he said.
“Thank you all for doing this work. It is clearly valuable, vital work.”
Australia’s defence: towards a new era? is available from Melbourne University Press.
