Development Strategies in East Asia and Latin America
The postwar economic and social development experiences of East Asia and Latin America provide a fascinating opportunity to test development theories and learn more about the complex interrelationships that exist between economic and social policies. This collection of studies, written by researchers from these regions, as well as from Japan and the US, aims to provide a fresh insight on the unequal impact of development policies in both regions. The book is divided into three parts. The first deals with broad issues of relevance to every country in the two regions. The second part contains country studies, with chapters devoted to Brazil, Chile, Korea, Malaysia and Mexico. The third and final part consists of three comparative papers examining pairs of countries in more detail: Brazil and Korea, Chile and Malaysia, and Indonesia and Mexico. These chapters draw on the broad issues as well as the country studies presented in Parts I and II.
