Summary "In 2006, the Council of the Canberra Branch of the AIIA initiated a lecture series of former secretaries of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The Canberra branch benefited from the fact that a number of the former secretaries had remained resident in Canberra and continued to be members of the AIIA. It was thought that this was too good an opportunity to miss and so the lecture series was formulated. In the end we have been very fortunate to obtain the participation of five of the eight living former secretaries. Over the period May to November 2006, presentations were made to members of AIIA at the national headquarters, Stephen House, Canberra. The series covers the watershed amalgamation of the Department of Foreign Affairs with the Department of Trade in 1987. A number of the speakers also provided some fascinating insights into major foreign policy issues that occurred over this momentous period in world history, which included the end of the Cold War, continuing problems in the Middle East, developments in Indonesia and the South Pacific and the rise of China."--Provided by publisher.
