Asian Politics in Development: Essays in Honour of Gordon White

Published on 1 January 2003

‘Asian Politics in Development’ adopts a multidisciplinary and comparative approach to development that brings together issues that are characteristic of the lifelong scholarship of Professor Gordon White: the state, civil society, welfare and globalisation.

The range of disciplines represented – including political science, economics, sociology and social economic anthropology – and the regional focus on China, India and East Asia-gives rise to an unusually creative and synergistic set of ideas for thinking about the various meanings of politics in development. They provide a valuable resource for academics, policy – orientated researchers, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students trying to understand and address policy problems in a theoretically informed and empirically grounded way.
