Peter Edwards gave yesterday's Wednesday Lowy Lunch address, in which he surveyed Australia's history and the effects it has had on the crafting of various defence white papers. You can listen to his speech here, and below is a short interview I conducted with him just before he gave his remarks.

Can I also just point out that, not only are Edwards'  arguments compelling, but unlike your correspondent, he has a rather nice voice for radio.
