National Observer

National Observer (formerly Australia and World Affairs) is Australia's leading current affairs quarterly, which also concerns itself with important social, economic and cultural issues, and with defence and security. National Observer extends to all issues that concern the national interest.

One of the functions of the National Observer is to provide high-quality commentary which is not affected by contemporary political correctness or prejudices. It therefore examines issues from the point of view of the long-term interests of Australians.

Contributors to National Observer have included many eminent commentators from a wide range of fields such as: Sir Avri Parbo, Mr Bob Santamaria, Mr Kim Beazley, Professor David Pennington, Sir Julius Chan, Professor Desmond Ball, Mr Hugh Morgan, Lt. General John Coates, Professor Hugh Emy, Mr Lee Kwan Yew, Mr Melvin Lasky, Sir Robert Menzies, Mr Tony Abbott, Professor Gabriel Moens, Professor Judith Armstrong, Professor Geoffrey Partington, Senator Ron Boswell, Emeritus Professor Jerzy Zubrzycki, Emeritus Professor Lance Endersbee, Mr John Stone, Dr Colin Howard, Professor Neville Norman, Mr R. J. Stove, Tunku Abdul Aziz, Professor Kenneth Minogue, Dr Hal Colebatch, Professor David Flint, Dr Sharif Shuja, Mr Charles Copeman, Mr Bill Hayden, Professor Leslie Marchant, Mr Brian Crozier, Sir Harry Gibbs, and Senator Nick Minchin.
