Event Co-sponsors: 
Kissinger Institute on China and the United States

As the world's most vital region, Asia embodies explosive economic growth, diverse political systems, vibrant societies, modernizing militaries, cutting-edge technologies, rich cultural traditions amid globalization, and strategic competition among major powers. As a result, international relations in Asia are evolving rapidly. In a recently updated edition of International Relations of Asia, leading scholars offer the most current and definitive analysis available of Asia's regional relationships. Join David Shambaugh, Michael Yahuda, Amitav Acharya, Robert Sutter, and Phillip Saunders to discuss developments in Asia, and the role of leading external and regional powers.

A reception will follow the book launch.
