Asia-Pacific Journal Subscription Drive December 2020

Ours is a reader-supported journal. We invite your support at a time when the Asia-Pacific and our world are being turned upside down by the combination of US-China conflict in the era of the Coronavirus pandemic and economic, political, climate and nuclear crisis. Thank you for your support. We have received $10,100 toward our $12,000 goal. This ends our subscription drive, but if you still wish to contribute and you value the Journal, please go to the Subscription page and contribute. For US tax payers, donations are tax-deductible.
