|Title:||Review of Akira Suehiro, 'Catch-Up Industrialization: The Trajectory and Prospects of East Asian Economies', NUS Press, 2008, ISBN 978-4-87698-741-2 Paperback US $30||Contributor(s):||Brown, Andrew J (author)||Publication Date:||2009||DOI:||10.1017/S1468109909990053||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7120||Abstract:||First published in 2000 under the title 'Kyatchi-appa gata Kōgyōka-ron: Ajia Keizai no Kiseki to Tenbō', this book by distinguished Japanese economist Akira Suehiro offers a timely analysis of industrialization in East Asia (a term that also includes the economies of Southeast Asia). This revised English language edition is especially welcome as it offers non-Japanese speakers access to the work of a scholar who has long been making significant contributions to debates on East Asian development issues. Professor Suehiro sets himself the ambitious task of developing a theory of East Asian economic transformation based upon a critical examination of 'catch-up industrialization'. In pursuing this objective, he critically engages with debates concerned with the nature of relations between governments and markets in East Asia, the role of state enterprises, state-society relations, and the contributions of ideology and Asian values. The book contains 13 chapters organized into two broad sections.||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Japanese Journal of Political Science, 10(3), p. 355-356||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Place of Publication:||Cambridge, United Kingdom||ISSN:||1468-1099
