Example text

Yet accumulating research on the nature of their industrialisation is increasingly demonstrating the distinctive character of both the strategy that achieved this and the forms of industrial organisation that have resulted. The questions to which this distinctiveness gives rise as regards agriculture’s part in the industrialisation process form the subject of this book. The first set of questions relates to agriculture’s contribution to the spectacularly rapid growth of industry in pre- and post-war Japan and in Taiwan and Korea in the 1960s and 1970s.

These features appear to be related to the particular characteristics of the East Asian natural, social, economic and political environment—to rice cultivation and the demands it makes on social and economic organisation, to the relation between state and citizen in East Asian political culture, and to the development strategies adopted—and it is on these that subsequent chapters will concentrate in the effort to analyse agriculture’s role in the East Asian development model at the micro level.
