Title:The Other Side of the Ditch - A Cartoon Century in the New Zealand-Australia Relationship
Published by the New Zealand Cartoon Archive, Wellington, 2001, 96 pages. The Australia-New Zealand relationship is a strange, complex one. At Gallipoli, Aussies and Kiwis were brothers-in-arms; today, in Earl's Court and other London haunts they're best mates. But at home, in the South Pacific where the similarities are most obvious, Australia and New Zealand often seem poles apart - not just across the ditch. In 1901 New Zealand turned down the chance of joining the Australian Federation. 'The Other Side of the Ditch' shows that, ever since, there's been intense, usually good-humoured, rivalry and disagreement over practically everything, including the origins of pavlova and Phar Lap.
