In this book, leading scholars, media practitioners and politicians reflect on the role of the press in society and government media relations, and explore the distinctive features of the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations)  press in an attempt at generating a comprehensive doctrine for the press systems of the region.

For each ASEAN country, the historical events that have shaped its press system, the legal and philosophical tenets of the system, the role and responsibility of the press, media regulations and restrictions, and the distinctiveness of the press system as compared to other systems, are examined.
