This book provides an analysis of ASEAN as a regional organisation and actor in Asian affairs, focusing on developments from the 1997-98 crisis up to the present. It gives special attention to the evolving nature of ASEAN itself, assessing the effectiveness of the 2008 Charter, and discussing the likely impact of the commitment to achieve an integrated ASEAN community in 2015. The book considers a range of issues, both issues to do with ASEAN itself, and policies adopted by ASEAN in specific areas, and is particularly valuable in that it provides a perspective from the point of view of ASEAN "insiders".
