The South Australian Globalist THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GLOBALIST - VOLUME 8, WINTER/SPRING 2014

Under the theme “Caught in the Tides of Power” we take a look at the world today and the ‘Realpolitik’ shaping it. We explore in depth some of the largest issues in contemporary world politics to build a picture of the forces and interests influencing it and take a snap shot of power at work, in all its messy and destructive nature. This theme has brought out the best in our writers, bringing a provocative issue full of articles bound to ignite some heated discussions.

Copies of the publication are available on campus from either of the School Offices at C2-21 or B1-11 or alternatively a copy can be requested from the SA Globalist team by emailing editor.saglobalist@gmail.com
