Review by

For students of SE Asian politics this is a must, throwing light on the mostly tedious machinations involved with dealing with politicians in SE Asia and the Pacific Rim countries. Chris Patten has an easy style and manages to involve the reader in politics without boring him/her to death.

Review by

I wanted to like this book, but find that, surprisingly, Patten really cannot write very well.
