No-one in the Australian government or Army could have predicted that in the 25 years following the end of the Cold War Army personnel would be deployed to Rwanda, Cambodia, Somalia, Bougainville, East Timor, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Solomon Islands. In a constructive critique of the modern Australian Army, On Ops examines the massive transformation that has taken place since troops were deployed to East Timor 1999.

After decades of inactivity and the ‘long peace’ of the 1970s and 1980s the Army was stretched to the limit. Contributors include John Howard and Peter Leahy as well as Craig Stockings, David Horner and an impressive array of military historians, academics, intelligence experts and ex and current Army.

About the Author

Considering the consequences of changing religious attitudes, this compelling account examines diminishing theological belief and denominational affiliation in Australia. This study argues that Australia has never been a particularly religious nation and that few Australians have deliberately rejected belief—while most simply cannot see why they need to bother with religion at all.

Furthermore, it contends that vehement campaigning against theistic belief is the product of growing disdain for religious fundamentalism and a vigorous commitment to personal autonomy. Dealing extensively with census data and offering clear, concise interpretations of Australia’s religious life, this treatise is sure to provoke debate about what matters to Australians.
