Researching History at SDSC

    This volume commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre (SDSC).

The book features chapters replete with stories of university politics, internal SDSC activities, cooperation among people with different social and political values, and conflicts between others, as well as the Centre's public achievements. It also details the evolution of strategic studies in Australia and the contribution of academia and defence intellectuals to national defence policy.
