Hedley Bull Book Launch: Address by Bob Hawke
Hedley Bull was one of the world's leading international relations scholars. After graduating from the University of Sydney, he went to the University of Oxford where he earned a BPhil in Politics and joined the Department of International Relations. He was named in 1964 the first head of the Arms Control and Disarmament Research Unit of the British Foreign Office. Bull then returned to Australia in 1967 as professor of International Relations at the Australian National University. After a decade at ANU, he went back to Oxford as the Montague Burton Professor of International Relations in 1977, the year his highly influential book The Anarchical Society: a Study of Order in World Politics was published. It remains today a standard text in international relations courses around the world.
The Honourable Bob Hawke, AC, former Prime Minister of Australia, addressed the audience at the launch of the "Hedley Bull" biography.
