Too frequently, present literature has conflated the discourses that enabled the 'War on Terror', ignoring the contextual specificities of the states that make up the ’Coalition of the Willing’. Australia's 'war on terror' Discourse fills this hole by way of offering an entire and sustained severe research of Australian international coverage discourse besides the theoretical synthesis for a particular version of serious discourse research of the topic. The language of then top Minister Howard is the first concentration of the publication yet realization is usually paid to the language of key ministers, political rivals and different well-liked actors. The voices of these who challenged the dominant discourse also are thought of to make clear the ways that discourses may be destabilised. Kathleen Gleeson exhibits how Howard effectively invoked narratives of identification and sovereignty that resonated along with his viewers and promoted his transformed narrative of Australia when dealing with dissent from many actors who voiced their competition so much effectively once they capitalised on inconsistencies in the discourse.
