Abstract:

"This study follows the historty of the relationship between New Zealand and the Soviet Union, especially between the years 1950 and 1991. The emphasis ... is on the official, government to government, relations that defined the context and tone of political and commercial dealings between countries. These official relations, however, shed light on the unofficial relations and the book examines how trade union contacts, the intellectual-cultural climate, and pro- and anti-Soviet lobbies all impacted on the relationship."--Back cover.
