Communication to the Editor

1994 Journal of Asian Studies  
The italicized words "initially necessary" have been dropped from the version cited by Haas. Leifer's interpretation also derives from an official government text-Malaysia, in this instance-published shortly after the communique was issued from Kuala Lumpur in November 1971. Moreover, it supports his interpretation that ZOPFAN encompassed conceptions quite beyond the standard meaning of neutrality. For ASEAN documents, the best policy would seem to be "caveat lector."
