Overview

States and Development in the Asian Pacific Rim / Edition 1

This book focuses on state policy and its consequences for economic development and social transformation in East Asia, and demonstrates the importance of state action in underpinning economic growth.

The editors argue that an adequate explanation of the 'Asian miracle' must take into account the central role played by the state economic and social policy - a requirement that is largely ignored by prevailing 'free market' and 'culturalist' accounts.
