Overview

With their shared Anzac history, it is often assumed that Australia and New Zealand are so alike that their peoples understand each other by second nature. This book challenges that perception in a series of essays by scholars, writers, and military from both countries. They reflect on the history and relationship of the two and on their differing relationships with America over time, providing a rare contemplation of the bonds between the three nations. These essays are "voices from America" in that the Center for Australian and New Zealand Studies in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, Washington, since 1997, has sponsored an ANZAC Lecture series and Waitangi addresses to observe New Zealand's national day. These provide the substance of this book, with contributions from Ambassadors Michael Thawley and John Wood, along with David Malouf, Christopher Pugsley, Peter Weir, Major-General Peter Cosgrove, Air Marshall Carey Adamson, David Walker, Barry Gustafson, Michael Crommelin, Michael Bassett, Michael King, James Belich, and Keith Sorrenson. Appendices provide the texts of the Treaty of Waitangi, the ANZUS Treaty and details of Australian and New Zealand casualties in World War I and at Gallipoli.
