Editorial Reviews

"This book is destined to be a standard reference on East Asian political economy for years to come. Its historical sweep, along with an ability to focus on contemporary developments in a thoughtful way, distinguishes Cai's treatment from others in the field."--Patrick James, Professor and Director of Centre for International Studies, University of Southern California, USA"This volume is a much-awaited contribution to the study of complex internal and external, and regional and national dynamics of the political economy in East Asia. It will certainly become required reading for students of East Asia."--Jae Ho Chung, Professor and Director of the Institute of Chinese Studies, Seoul National University, South Korea"Given the growing regionalization of world economy and accelerating Asian economic integration, a comprehensive and systemic survey on the political economy of East Asia is more significant than ever. This book provides a timely contribution to pressing academic needs."--To-hai Liou, Professor of Diplomacy and Director, the Centre for Australian Studies, National Chengchi University, Taiwan"East Asia now has everyone's attention. In this systematic and insightful study, Kevin Cai documents the unique combination of national initiative and regional integration that converted East Asia from a backward and easily ignored region into a global powerhouse, on the verge of recasting the foundations of the international economy."--Ken S. Coates, President of the Japan Studies Association of Canada
