Publisher Description

Recognizing the pivotal role that local governments play in the high-tech economy, this book examines the effect of technology industries and infrastructures on cities and the local policy actions required for effective response to these challenges. It provides coverage of the technology economy with respect to cities and economic development.

“The pace and depth of change in East Asia has created the need for a new introduction to the region for students and the general reader. Not only is China growing at an amazing rate, but China's dynamism impacts the whole surrounding region. East Asia is becoming more closely integrated every year and Southeast Asia is increasingly drawn into the mix. John Miller sees East Asia's dramatic transformation in the context of modern history. His new introductory text presents a dynamic portrait of the emergence of East Asia in a well-written and engaging fashion. He challenges old assumptions, skillfully presents essential information about the past, and provides new avenues to understanding.” - David D. Buck, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee"
