About the Authors
  • The economic crises in Asia at the turn of the millennium changed the innovation and business production systems of China, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Taiwan. This investigation follows several different industries, including semiconductors, automobiles, and hard disk drives. It explores the approaches that Asian nations have taken to building a strong technological and economic base for their respective industries from technonationalism to technoglobalism. It asks if the Asian economic miracle is over, or whether these countries are reinventing their economies.

    • Expert case studies on different Asian states - suitable for course adoption in political economy and area studies
    • Excellent for business audiences interested in Asian technology and markets
    • Provides a structured analysis for students of comparative politics
