While the Iraq War and Middle East conflicts preoccupy much of the developed world, fundamental changes are occurring in East Asia. North Korea has tested nuclear weapons, even as it and South Korea have effectively entered a period of tepid détente; relations among China, Japan and South Korea are a complex mixture of conflict and cooperation; and Japan is developing more forthright security polities, even as it deepens ties with the United States. Together, these developments pose vital questions for world stability and security. Professors Kent Calder and Francis Fukuyama, authors of East Asian Multilateralism: Prospects for Regional Stability, examine the geopolitical and economic implications of shifting alignments in East Asia. They will also discuss their new assessment, including prospects for deeper regional cooperation, and pose tough questions about America’s security and national interests in the region.
Followed by a book signing.
