Editorial Reviews


A must-read for anyone interested in industrial clusters, this book offers not only excellent case studies on Silicon Valley and four dynamic clusters in Asia but also an insightful analytical survey of the typology and necessary conditions for clusters. Its assessment of the prospects for the creation of a new industrial cluster in Kitakyushu, Japan, provides particularly valuable insights into the nuts and bolts of cluster creation and growth. --Carl J. Dahlman, Luce Professor of Information Technology and International Affairs, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University

This richly informed volume brings to light the experience of nascent industrial clusters in Asia. The authors of this volume have probed hard and deep into the conditions necessary to create clusters and, in turn, have sharpened our understanding of causal relationships. The book provides an abundance of empirical evidence that is sure to sustain policy attention on the dynamics of clustering. --Weiping Wu, Associate Professor, Urban Studies and Planning, International Studies, Virginia Commonwealth University
