About the Authors
  • Asia after the Developmental State presents cutting-edge analyses of state-society transformation in Asia under globalisation. The volume incorporates a variety of political economy and public policy oriented positions, and collectively explores the uneven evolution of new public management and neoliberal agendas aimed at reordering state and society around market rationality. Taken together, the contributions explore the emergence of marketisation across Asia, including China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam - what is now often described as the world's most economically dynamic region - and the degree to which marketisation has taken root, in what forms, and how this is impacting state, society and market relationships.

    • Provides a cutting-edge analysis of the subject
    • Explores the impact and emergence of market relationships across Asia

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘This excellent collection provides a wide ranging set of analyses and case studies that show the varieties of different forms of state-market relationships that vary not just from country to country and over time, but also across different sectors in individual countries. But despite this diversity, a common emphasis on how state capacities are being transformed to serve specific interests and purposes provides a unifying glue to produce an overall coherent, effective, and compelling whole.’ Shaun Breslin, Warwick University

    ‘This is an excellent collection that combines analytical rigour with a deep empirical knowledge to challenge the dominant institutionalist understanding of developmentalism and developmental states in Asia. The book analyses the changing patterns of class conflict and alliances in the post-developmental state era in Asia which are driving inequality and leading to political crisis. This is a timely book that charts a new agenda for the study of Asia’s political economy. Essential reading.’ Kanishka Jayasuriya, Murdoch University, Australia
