About this product
- DescriptionIn the postwar period, Korea's ecomic and social-political metamorphosis is a rare example of a successful transition from one of the world's poorest developing countries to a highly sophisticated industrial society-an experience which many developing countries are keen to emulate. The change is particularly significant as Korea was able to reduce poverty and keep social inequality at a modest level during its rapid ecomic development. This volume analyzes the Korean transition in regards to the political and institutional foundation of its government and public policies. The government of Korea single-mindedly carried out public policies to stimulate ecomic growth, but the government and public policies have themselves been affected and changed by the process. The contention of this volume is that the transition of Korean society and the evolution of the Korean government are the results of two-way interactions. In this context, the volume analyzes the way in which the dynamics of public administration were shaped within the Korean government and the kinds of public policies and instruments that were adopted to encourage this ecomic and social development. This analysis will allow a more complete understanding of the ecomic and social transformation of Korea. Surprisingly, there is a paucity of research on this aspect-a gap which this volume seeks to fill. This volume shows that it is necessary to maintain consistency and coherence in government and public policy in order to achieve ecomic and social transformation, making it of interest to both scholars and policy-makers concerned with development in the Asia-Pacific.
- Author BiographyThis proposal comes from series author Min Gyo Koo, whose book on maritime disputes published in 2009. He was very good to work with and the series editor has enthusiastically endorsed the proposal. Both CVs are attached. There may also be a possibility for grant funding for copyediting/paperback version from the Korea Foundation, from whom we received $5k for Min Gyo's last book and $10k for a recent title. The manuscript is nearly ready to go and was already reviewed by the series editor, Vinnie Aggarwal.
