Reviews

“The detailed history that Nam provides is well done and fruitfully extends the existing literature. … Nam’s book represents an important contribution to the emerging literature on the welfare state in the industrializing world. It advances new concepts and sparks interesting debates.” (Joseph Harris, Governance, Vol. 31 (1), January, 2018)
