About this book

Economic growth continues to transform the economic and political landscape of Asia. Equally the policies now being adopted to promote private sector participation, re-structure state entities, and reduce the presence of the state in the provision of public goods and services, are tied to fundamental transformations in Asia's state-society relations. The global cast of contributors present a timely analysis of the impact of neo-liberalism on Asia's developmental policies and the organisation of Asian states and markets. Ironically, the "developmental state" that has historically driven Asia's rapid economic transformation is now threatened by an increasingly dominant neoliberal agenda that aims to roll back the state in the name of market fundamentalism.

Reviews

“Carroll and Jarvis’s edited volume provides a timely examination of the developmental policies and state-society relations in contemporary Asia, in particular by dealing with the impacts of neoliberalism. … this book represents a valuable addition to the expanding literature on the dynamics of neoliberalism and its impact on state society relations in Asia.” (Wei Li, Pacific Affairs, Vol. 89 (1), March, 2016)

“The book is a useful and substantial contribution to the debate on the subject matter and is recommended for those with interests in political economy, human geography, politics of development and public policy, or for those with an area-specific interest, or perhaps a more specific interest in the debates on the role, form and function of states in economic development under late capitalism.” (Karim Knio and Zuzana Novakova, Journal of Contemporary Asia, Vol. 46 (1), 2016)
