R.G. Casey: Minister for External Affairs 1951-1960

The Australian Institute of International Affairs has published a book exploring aspects of the tenure of The Right Honourable R.G. Casey (Lord Casey) as Minister for External Affairs of the Commonwealth of Australia from 1951 to 1960.

This is a consequence of a forum entitled “R.G. Casey as Minister for External Affairs 1950 – 60, Fifty Years On” held to commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of Casey’s retirement at the Sir David Smith Meeting Rooms in Government House Yarralumla in February 2010.

The book has been edited by Melissa Conley Tyler, John Robbins and Adrian March.
