Stanley, Laura (2010) Mates and missiles: the Menzies Government and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Other Degree thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

This thesis examines the Menzies Government's response to the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962. This is the first historical investigation of the Crisis in the context of Australian-American relations. Its primary objective, therefore, is to fill a historiographical gap in Australia's Cold War history.
