Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
When this book came out, Asia was being hit with the financial crisis. This event is therefore not mentioned. So in a sense this book is out of date. However, it remains relevant. Not only does this book explain East Asia's success until 1998, but many of the underlying causes for that success have remained in place after 1998. This is especially true of China, which receives relatively scant coverage in this book (and is thus an excellent topic for a sequel, if any).
Chapters 1 and 15 (overview and conclusion) by Rowen are excellent, as is ch. 7 by Stevenson on Asian education.
