book launch and discussion
Rivers of Iron: Railroads and Chinese Power in Southeast Asia
David M. Lampton, Selina Ho & Cheng-Chwee Kuik.
The book illuminates the political strengths and weaknesses of the China’s effort to create an intercountry railway system connecting China and its seven Southeast Asian neighbors (Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam), as well as the capacity of the impacted countries to resist, shape, and even take advantage of China’s wide-reaching actions. Using frameworks from the fields of international relations and comparative politics, the authors of Rivers of Iron seek to explain how domestic politics in these eight Asian nations shaped their varying external responses and behaviors. The three authors will be presenting on-line their book, followed by series of discussion.
