Abstract : The overview suggests that a breakup of the ANZUS alliance will establish disturbing strategic precedents and may create a power vacuum in the South Pacific. The study weighs the depth of antinuclear sentiment in the region and examines how the prevalence of this view has deleterious consequences for the United States. The narrative also notes that in spite of the possible demise of ANZUS, Australia and New Zealand will endeavor to maintain their defense responsibilities in the area by a number of cooperative measures with regional states. The chronology lists about 170 items relating to defense cooperation among the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. The documentation volume comprises texts of agreements and treaties relating to such cooperation.
