Abstract

This is a major work of scholarship on the East Asian economic miracle; the 25 pages of bibliography are a clear testimony to that. It is also an ambitious piece of work in a really crowded and well-trodden field. The book covers an area in development literature which is dominated by some truly outstanding contributions to knowledge and is, too, scattered with several highly contentious, but nevertheless highly thought-provoking controversies. Regrettably more often than not, it is also an area which is scarred by countless mediocre elaborations, pretentious generalizations, disingenuous interpretations, dogmatic claims, indifferent reiterations, and half-baked postulates. Thus, in the author’s perception, the existing literature fails to provide a “cohesive and comprehensive conceptual framework that examines the economic growth experience of these four economies in their entirety” (p. 1).
