Book Launch: Dancing With Warriors, Philip Flood AO

Philip Flood AO
Philip Flood AO, author of Dancing with Warriors.

Dancing with Warriors is Philip Flood’s memoir of his 50 years working in Australia’s Foreign and trade policy. In it, he argues that Australian Prime Ministers and Ministers have done well in advancing Australia’s security and trade relations. Successive governments, however, have not done enough to prepare Australians for the rise of Asia, failing to develop within Australia a deep understanding of the cultures and languages of our nearest neighbours.

The Hon Barry Jones AO, former Minister for Science and current Board member of Care Australia, will introduce and launch the book. Copies of Dancing with Warriors will be available for purchase, and Flood will be available for book signing after the launch.

Philip Flood AO is a distinguished former diplomat and a former senior public servant. His career highlights include Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and was Ambassador to Indonesia and Director-General of AusAID. He was also High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.

Since retiring from the diplomatic service in 2000 he has been actively involved with Care Australia, the Australia-Indonesia Institute and has been a member of the Asialink Board.
