Rise of the Rest by Alice H. Amsden
Book DescriptionAfter World War II a select number of countries outside Japan and the West-those that Alice Amsden calls "the rest"-gained market share in modern industries and altered global competition. By 2000, a great divide had developed within "the rest", the lines drawn according to prewar manufacturing experience and equality in income distribution. China, India, Korea and Taiwan had built their own national manufacturing enterprises that were investing heavily in R&D. Their developmental states had transformed themselves into champions of science and technology. By contrast, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico had experienced a wave of acquisitions and mergers that left even more of their leading enterprises controlled by multinational firms. The developmental states of Mexico and Turkey had become hand-tied by membership in NAFTA and the European Union. Which model of late industrialization will prevail, the "independent" or the "integrationist," is a question that challenges the twenty-first century.

Books By Author Alice H. Amsden
Role of Elites in Economic Development, Paperback (November 2014)
Elites play a crucial role in the development process. The impact they have on growth and development exceeds their representation within a country. This volume uses case studies from South Africa to China to seek an understanding of the relationship between elites and economic development.
Escape from Empire, Paperback (October 2009)
A provocative view of economic growth in the Third World argues that the countries that have achieved steady economic growth--including future economic superpowers India and China--have done so because they have resisted the American ideology of free markets.
Making Aid Work, Hardback (April 2007)
An encouraging account of the potential of foreign aid to reduce poverty and a challenge to all aid organizations to think harder about how they spend their money.
Beyond Late Development, Hardback (May 2003)» View all books by Alice H. Amsden
