"This is the first in a series of volumes prepared in the Historical Branch, Department of Internal Affairs, dealing with New Zealand's involvement in conflicts since the Second World War. [...] The events in Korea also provided an opportunity for New Zealand to pursue its goal of obtaining a commitment bu the United States to its security. The ANZUS treaty of 1951 was the successful achievement of this objective, and was to have far-reaching implications for New Zealand's international relations in the long term [...] Drawing on a wealth of published and unpublished sources, this first volume is a detailed and fascinating study of New Zealand's foreign policy in the post-war world.
