Synopsis: This book is a systematic study of the political economy of East Asia. A central theme of the book is that the development of the East Asian political economy since the late 19th century has been consistently defined by both regional and national dynamics. Over time, East Asian states have not only achieved economic success by following a similar path of economic development but have also been organized into an integrated regional economy. In this process, Japan has historically played a pivotal role in not only organizing the regional economy around the Japanese economic power but, more significantly, influencing the development path of national economies through its developmental state structure. Since the 1980s, however, while the developmental state model has declined and been adapted to new domestic and external conditions, the East Asian political economy has been increasingly jointly influenced by America, Japan, China and other national and regional players.

Book Description: '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
