Malcolm Turnbull, the 29th Prime Minister of Australia, possesses a unique and timely understanding of the current geopolitical moment. As Prime Minister, he forged lasting connections with world leaders and speaks to the inﬂuence that their politics have on the world. During his tenure, Turnbull was involved in key policy decisions that have not only altered Australian society but also have international implications for other countries facing similar issues—same-sex marriage, environmental conservation and energy crises, global trade, cyber security, and the ever-worsening refugee crisis.
