Book launch: The Echidna Strategy: Australia’s Search for Power and Peace
In the wake of a shift in the global power balance, how can Australia best protect itself?
The Echidna Strategy overturns the conventional wisdom about Australia’s security. Australia will need to defend itself without American help, but this doesn’t need to cost more. The Echidna Strategy sheds new light on the contest for leadership in Asia and the strategy Australia needs to thrive.
