The ASEAN Miracle

by Kishore Mahbubani

The ASEAN Miracle Synopsis

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is a miracle. Why?In an era of growing cultural pessimism, many thoughtful individuals believe that different civilisations-especially Islam and the West-cannot live together in peace. The ten countries of ASEAN provide a thriving counter-example of civilizational co-existence. Here 625m people live together in peace. This miracle was delivered by ASEAN. In an era of growing economic pessimism, where many young people believe that their lives will get worse in coming decades, Southeast Asia bubbles with optimism. In an era where many thinkers predict rising geopolitical competition and tension, ASEAN regularly brings together all the world's great powers. Stories of peace are told less frequently than stories of conflict and war. ASEAN's imperfections make better headlines than its achievements. But in the hands of thinker and writer Kishore Mahbubani, the good news story is also a provocation and a challenge to the rest of the world.

The ASEAN Miracle Press Reviews

This book contains the best overall summary of ASEAN that this reviewer has seen in 40 years [...] Chapter Four features insightful and analytic pen sketches of the 10 ASEAN nations-this chapter alone makes the entire volume worth buying. - Southeast Asian Studies, 7.3
