Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Analyzes in detail the development of education and training systems in Honk Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea and their relationship to the process of economic growth. With perspectives from sociology, economics, training, and labor studies, focuses on how the systems facilitated the transition from labor-intensive to capital- intensive forms of production, and explores the crucial role of the state. Finds the hallmark of policy is that the governments have been able to gear the output of their education and training systems to the requirements of any particular stage of growth, often by anticipating future skill demands.
