"This book presents a comprehensive overview of the key issues relating to law and development in Asia. It discusses the different models of law and development, including both the developmental state model of the 1960s and the neo-liberal model of the 1980s, and shows how development has worked out in practice in relation to these models in a range of Asian countries, including Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, Singapore, India and Mongolia. Particular themes examined include constitutionalism, judicial and legal reform, labour law, the growing importance of private rights, foreign investment and the international law of development.
