Abstract

Recognizing the specificity of the parallel development of industrial modernization and the deepening of political authoritarianism in South Korea under the leadership of Park Chung Hee – which calls into question the hypothesis on political change of conventional theory, whether liberal or Marxist – this study presents its own explanatory model, integrating the statist and late-comer theses in a dynamic fashion. In line with this alternative model, the study attempts to identify the particular pattern of interaction among the political, economic and social spheres in South Korea over the period from 1961 to 1979. The study argues, by way of its overall conclusion, that the political requirements of late industrialization and the double-edged effects of such industrialization, which was promoted by the state in a particular historical context lacking a dynamic bourgeoisie, constitute major factors that explain the specificity of the Korean case.
