    As the thirtieth anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) approached in 1997, there was due satisfaction in its record of molding cooperation in the region and optimism about its future. However, the economic crisis that has swept through East Asia has dimmed hopes for ASEAN. In this paper, ASEAN's means of achieving its past successes are analyzed as well as its prospects for future progress in expanding its members to ten states, economic integration, and security cooperation.
