About the Author

Ann Elias is an associate professor of visual arts at the University of Sydney.


'Elias's cross-disciplinary approach of bringing together art, science
and psychology in the pursuit of disguise and concealment in the
military context is refreshing.'

-- Catherine Speck * Australian Historical Studies *

'Camouflage Australia is an eloquent work. But Ann Elias gives us much more than a hidden history of artists, scientists and soldiers. She tells us about the contest of knowledge in modern Australia, and provides an insight into the contested domain of civil-military relations.'

-- Ben Wadham * Journal of Sociology *
