Eat, Drink and be Wary: A New Zealand Diplomat Looks Back
Jim Weir joined the New Zealand Foreign Service in 1947. His career included periods as High Commissioner and Ambassador and this book highlights some of the people, places and events in his diplomatic career. It also dips into New Zealand's post-War political history and its place in the world. This is a book rich in anecdote and is a perceptive and often amusing read.
