Book Launch 2015 - Success
The Centre for Governance and Public Policy officially launched its members books for 2015.
The enduring power of the book took centre stage at the 9th Annual Book launch, celebrating an exceptional year of 15 books published by Centre members. Centre Director, Professor Haig Patapan, spotlighted the impact and impression an old-fashioned book with pages continues to have in a digital age where electronic distractions are many. The 15 titles penned, co-penned or edited by researchers at the Centre addressed and analysed a range of political and international issues, from the politics of energy to populists in powers, and from presidential rhetoric in the US to democracy in the Pacific Islands.
Launching the books this year, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Engagement), Professor Martin Betts, highlighted how timely and topical the various works were and commended the foresight of the authors. A full list of titles published in 2015 is available on the News page - click on Read More Here - below.
