Book Details

The latest issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines Australia’s momentous decision to form a security pact with the United States and the United Kingdom that includes an ambitious, expensive and risky plan to acquire nuclear-power submarines, a move that will have far-reaching military and strategic consequences. Dead in the Water looks at whether the AUKUS deal will enhance or undermine Australia’s security as tensions between China and the US rise, at the impact on Australia’s ties with its regional neighbours, and at whether the submarines plan is likely to ever be achieved. Hugh White- Fatal shores- Why AUKUS is a grave mistake Elizabeth Buchanan- Pit stop nation- Australia is selling itself short Susannah Patton- Muscling up- What do the neighbours really think? Andrew Davies- Sunk cost- Does the $368 billion submarine deal make sense?
