Australian peacekeeping : sixty years in the field by D. M Horner( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peacekeeping has been a significant part of Australia's overseas military engagement since the end of the Second World War. Yet it is part of our history that has been largely neglected until the 1990s, and even since then interest has been slow to develop. In the last sixty years, between 30,000 and 40,000 Australian military personnel and police have served in more than 50 peacekeeping missions in at least 27 different conflicts. From the first Australian mission to Indonesia in 1947 to operations in East Timor, Bosnia and Rwanda among others, this book finally gives Australian peacekeeping its proper status. This work approaches Australian peacekeeping from four angles: its history, its agencies, some personal reflections, and its future. Contributors discuss the distinction between peacekeeping and war-fighting, the importance of peacekeeping in terms of public policy, the problems of multinational command, and the specialist contributions of the military, civilian police, mine-clearers, weapons inspectors and diplomats. The collection concludes with experts in the field including Tim Ford, a former Military Adviser to the UN Secretary-General, and distinguished academic Ramesh Thakur offering their perspectives on future directions for Australian peacekeeping"--Provided by publisher

The spy catchers. the official history of ASIO, 1949-1963 by D. M Horner( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, ASIO has opened its archives to an independent historian. With unfettered access to the records, David Horner tells the real story of Australia's domestic intelligence organisation, from shaky beginnings to the expulsion of Ivan Skripov in 1963. From the start, ASIO's mission was to catch spies. In the late 1940s, the top secret Venona program revealed details of a Soviet spy ring in Australia, supported by leading Australian communists. David Horner outlines the tactics ASIO used in counter-espionage, from embassy bugging to surveillance of local suspects. His research sheds new light on the Petrov Affair, and details incidents and activities that have never been revealed before. This authoritative and ground-breaking account overturns many myths about ASIO, and offers new insights into broader Australian politics and society in the fraught years of the Cold War
