Edited by Kim Richard Nossal
Canadian Institute of International Affairs, 1982, 202 pp.

Since the 1940s John Holmes has been a distinguished Canadian diplomat, prolific author, and "facilitator" (his own word) of scholarship. Eight essays by friends and students range over historical topics from the 1930s to the 1970s, from Canadian policy on selling arms to South Africa to defense cooperation with the United States.
