“When we think of the potential theatres where the use of nuclear weapons is possible in the 21st century, it is difficult to go past Asia as the prime region of risk.”

So writes Professor Andrew O’Neil, Director of the Griffith Asia Institute, in the introduction to Asia, the US and Extended Nuclear Deterrence, his new book was launched by the National President of the Australian Institute of International Affairs and Chair of the Griffith Asia Institute Advisory Board, John McCarthy AO FAIIA, on Wednesday.

The new offices of the Griffith Asia Institute, at Griffith’s Nathan campus, were also officially opened prior to the book launch, a fitting opportunity to consider the Institute’s role in promoting greater understanding of our region, and Australia’s place in it, in the 21st century.
