Pearls and Irritations provides quite the best daily analysis of issues in world affairs and Australia’s foreign relations of any media in Australia – traditional or online. I find it valuable because its contributors bring a depth of knowledge and experience of their subject from decades of working directly on these issues in expert and professional capacities, in government, academia and the media. And because it covers issues and evidence-based perspectives that often go untouched by the general media. I recommend it regularly to friends and colleagues in other countries as the best-informed and intelligent commentary on Australia in world affairs this country has to offer.
