Although there are many excellent scholarly works on the South Korean economy, this is one of the most readable and comprehensive for the nonspecialist. The author, a journalist who covers East Asia for a number of newspapers, predicts that by the year 2001 the South Korean economy will be nearly four times as big as it now is, with a per capita income of $4,300 in today's dollars.
