Review Text

  • By Professor on October 21, 2013

    John Lie argues that the economic transformation of South Korea cannot be emulated by other nations because of distinctive variables that contributed to South Korea's success. He also suggests that perhaps the South Korean economic model should not even be considered exemplary because it was achieved with at times brutal totalitarian methods that exploited working men and women for a long time. Lie's argument is distinctive when so much of the literature holds South Korea up as the model for what other countries should be. Although he discusses the role of the Vietnam War in South Korea's development, he fails to fully explore the economic terms South Korea set with the United States for its participation in the war. Those terms covered eight years of warfare from which South Korea profited enormously and derived much investment capital. Lie's perspective works with the interface between sociology and economics. That alone makes it worth reading. But the benefit is greatest for scholars, historians, and foreign policy specialists already well versed in South Korea's political economy.
