Corporate Lecture
11:30 am -1 pm

The Asia-Pacific region has been transformed by the end of the Cold War, terrorism and the rise of China as a major power. Capital flows across borders have increased, and for the first time in its long history, multilateral organizations have sprung up in the trade, finance and security areas. In their new book, published by Stanford University Press, Professors T.J. Pempel and Ellis Krauss bring together the thinking of 13 experts from the U.S., Japan, Australia, Singapore and the United Kingdom, on how and to what extent the crucial global and regional security, finance, and trade transformations have altered the U.S.-Japan relationship. In their conclusion, the editors use their findings to answer the question of how, and how far, “beyond bilateralism” the U.S.-Japan relationship has gone, and what these changes mean for the future.

Followed by a booksigning.
