The Research Office and Political Science Department invite you to a book launch for Dr. Shaun Narine's "The New ASEAN in Asia Pacific and Beyond," September 28 at 2:30 pm in the Rotunda.

"The New ASEAN in Asia Pacific and Beyond" traces the organization's political and economic development and explores its impact within Southeast Asia and beyond. It considers ASEAN's role both regionally and with regard to the external powers—China, the United States, Japan, Russia, and increasingly India—whose interests so strongly influence the regional environment. Dr. Narine's comprehensive, multilayered analysis critically addresses the question of just how ASEAN is evolving to fit the demands of a new era.

Refreshments will be served.
