|The Making of the ASEAN Summit, Related Summits and the First East Asia Summit
Written by IDFR former Director General Ambassador Dr Fauziah Mohamad Taib, with a foreword by The Honourable Foreign Minister Dato' Seri Syed Hamid Albar, the book The Making of the ASEAN Summit, Related Summits and the First East Asia Summit was commissioned in order to chronicle the journey taken by Malaysia in hosting the 11th ASEAN Summit and Related Summits. For too long now, Malaysia's experiences as a host nation have gone undocumented, at least in published form. It is hoped that the publication of this book will serve as a guide to future events.
