Abstract:

"The study of Asia was introduced into the curriculum of The University of Auckland nearly fifty years ago. Why was it done? How was it done? This book describes the objectives, achievements and endeavours to place them in a larger context. The importance of the issues raised extends well beyond the university world. During this period, New Zealand's relationship with Asia has been transformed, but the interest in studying it has not expanded to the same extent. What is now the way forward? This book has been written in the belief that knowing more about the past may help in influencing the future"--Back cover.
