Description

The economic crisis of 1997 called East Asia’s economic miracle into question and generated widespread criticism of the region’s developmental models. However, the crisis did little to alter the growing economic integration of American, Japanese and Chinese firms who have created cross-border production networks. This book addresses the changing nature of high-tech industries in Asia, particularly in the electronics sector, where such networks are increasingly designed to foster and to exploit the region’s highly heterogenous technology, skills and know-how.
