"Security and defence" provides a comprehensive in-depth study of Australia and the Asia--Pacific region, with a fresh approach which counters the traditional Euro- and American-centric view of strategy and defence in this part of the world. It deals with three broad issues of concern: * Global issues: the future of the nuclear strategic balance between the super-powers, the development of non-provocative defence strategies, arms control, and international terrorism. * Australian policy-making on national security: defence strategies, and the relevance of the ANZUS alliance. * Regional security: a country by country examination of the security concerns of nations in the region, and their security relationship with Australia. As a unique overview of the essential contemporary issues in strategy and defence, the book will be of serious interest to students of international relations and strategic studies. "Desmond Ball is Head of the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre at the Australian National University; Cathy Downes is Research Fellow at the Centre.".
