The four Asian tigers : economic development and the global political economy

"This book critically examines the geopolitical and economic contexts of the region's export-oriented industrialization. This collection of original papers describes the economic developments and environment that underlie the East Asian NICs. Through a comparison of the Four Tigers - South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore - the contributors deliver a case-oriented study that explains the region's most successful economies."--Jacket
