In Fear of Security: Australia's Invasion Anxiety
Pluto Press, 2001 - 371 pages
Part of the media.culture series. Investigates Australia's 'obsession' with national security. Argues that security has dominated and distorted Australia's foreign policy and national life, from Cook's first voyage to the current Asian crisis. Contends that Australia's security always depends on the suffering and insecurity of others - whether they are boat people, asylum seekers, East Timorese or the Aborigines. Includes an analysis of Australia's Refugee Policy and the Tampa crisis. Includes photos, notes and index. Author is lecturer in International Politics at the University of Adelaide.
