The Dawn Of The Pacific Century: Implications For Three Worlds Of Development

By William McCord
Transaction, 1991
216 pp.
Purchase

The literature on the Asian development "miracle" is already quite vast. What distinguishes this volume by a professor of sociology at the City University of New York Graduate Center is the author's display of a commanding knowledge of a broad range of literature in the social sciences and a sound critique of existing theories of development. The author makes the case for a genuinely Asian model of development that must be understood on its own terms-without reference to Adam Smith, Karl Marx or Max Weber. There is an excellent annotated bibliography.
