This is an off-site event held at Asia Society, 725 Park Avenue (at 70th St.).

Few Westerners escape the images, expectations and misperceptions that portray Asia as exotic, sensual and mysterious. Sheridan Prasso‘s provocative book challenges the cultural and political stereotypes that have dominated Western thinking for over a century and continue to impact East-West business negotiations, social transactions, foreign policy and the rapidly growing Asian American communities. She takes us on a reality tour so we can see Asia and Asians demystifed. Followed by a book signing and reception.

Tickets: $12; Japan Society members $7; students with I.D. $5.

To order tickets, please call the Asia Society Box Office, (212) 517-ASIA.
