War and Militarism

Seven papers published since February 2012 on militarising Australian history (Marilyn Lake), war is a health hazard (Jenny Grounds), sending Australians to war (Paul Barratt), promoting security (John Langmore), emotions and the criticism of war (Joy Damousi), Australia’s trade in arms (Michelle Fahy) and Australia’s military relationships (Stewart Firth). There is a further paper here on war and health which notes, among other things, that Australia’s Vietnam veterans have a rate of mental health issues five to ten times that of other Australians.
