Asia's Next Giant

South Korea and Late Industrialization

Alice H. Amsden

The important book contends that South Korea's phenomenal economic growth is attributable to "late industrialization," the process in which a nation's industries learn or borrow from other innovator nations, rather than innovate themselves. Amsden focuses on the principle of reciprocity and compares South Korea's experience to that of Japan and other late industrializing nations.
