With the defeat of Japan in 1945, the Pacific Ocean became an 'American Lake'. However, the situation in the South Pacific has now changed: instability manifests itself in military coups, ethnic conflict, racial strife and the growing intrusion of external powers. The slow pace of decolonization and the continuance of nuclear testing reinforces widespread anti-French feeling: disputes over fishing have opened the way for the Soviet Union to establish trade agreements. US reaction to New Zealand signals the end of ANZUS. In this book seven political analysts review these transformations and explore their consequences. The books is designed for students and lecturers in international relations. In 'No longer an American lake?' seven political analysts review these transformations and explore the consequences.
