Editorial Reviews

CHOICE
The author, an accomplished academic, covers these events and virtually everything else in the relationship between the two countries with a remarkable thoroughness.
International Perspectives
...to be welcomed as an addition to a so far relatively neglected aspect of the Commonwealth.
The Canadian Historical Review
The story is based on many published and unpublished sources and is well told...a useful contribution to the history of the twentieth-century Commonwealth.
American Historical Review
...a valuable and authoritative book, one that is well written, well constructed, and admirably free from polemics. It will undoubtedly remain for many years the standard work on the bilateral relationship.
International Journal
...this is a sound and valuable addition to the literature on Canadian foreign policy, and on what has come to be known as the South African issue.
International Journal Of African Historical Studies
...a thoroughly researched, workmanlike study...
The American Review Of Canadian Studies
...a most useful analysis of Canada's relations with South Africa in 1961. It includes many personal insights regarding the leaders of both countries, as well as providing a thorough and perceptive study of the official actions. Readers will be pleased to know that such specialized studies as this can still be made available at a reasonable price through the ingenious system of the University Press of America. It is recommended not only to serious historians, but to all those who have an interest in the development of the Commonwealth.
