Book Launch: No Enemies No Friends

Readings State Library, Woiwurrung Country, State Library Victoria, 285-321 Russell St, Melbourne 3000, Victoria

Together with the Australian Institute, we are delighted to invite you to join us for the launch of Allan Behm’s No Enemies No Friends.

Here Behm explores how Australia’s cultural and historical experiences have shaped our security thinking. Our mindset is built around interlocking pathologies: racism, misogyny, isolation, insecurity, a brashness that masks a deep lack of self-confidence, and the perverse effects of the cultural cringe.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.

Please book here.

We are committed to providing a safe environment for our staff and customers. Ahead of the event, please visit
