Hard Choices by Donald K. Emmerson
Book DescriptionSecurity has long trumped democracy as a priority for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). But the brutal dictatorship in Burma/Myanmar, political pluralism in Indonesia, and the global growth of democratic norms have led some Southeast Asians to question ASEAN's habit of turning a blind eye to domestic abuses by member states. The concept of regional security, meanwhile, is being reoriented from military threats toward new dangers to health and the environment and from state. In Hard Choices, experts grapple with key and controversial questions for Southeast Asia today and tomorrow.
