How best to defend Australia


John Mortimer

Little has been written in recent decades about Australia’s defence strategy, aside from the normal run of Defence White Papers and the odd book such as Ross Babbage’s A Coast Too Long – Defending Australia, published in 1990. As such, I expected that Hugh White’s book, How to Defend Australia (La Trobe University Press, 2019), would provide some useful insights into the dilemmas facing current defence planners around the world who are trying to come to grips with the evolving global situation, now that the heat seems to have come off the war on terror (though not totally).
