Inhaltsangabe: This book provides a comprehensive overview of what Asian industrial clusters might teach us. At a time when the dynamics of the world's economy are increasingly being influenced by developments in Asia, the question takes on particular relevance because of the explosion of clusters and cluster policies throughout the region; and because of the great variety of models which can be seen developing in the various countries.
Based on robust empirical surveys and interviews conducted in China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Japan, the studies collected in this book were first debated at an international workshop in Lyon. From industrial districts to poles of competitiveness, these studies explored the transformation of traditional systems of activities or industrial districts to new networks ready for global competition or innovation, and also the development of new agglomerations or scientific knowledge clusters.
The wide range of case studies in this collection offers a rich store of theoretical and practical lessons for analysts, policy-makers and economists. The book will also be a useful guide for graduate students as well as researchers in economics, sociology and political studies.
Readership: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in economics, sociology, politics; researchers, business executives.
Review: "Through empirical field studies, often by native researchers, the volume captures careful snapshots of the industrial activity, linkages and historical development in each cluster. Given such a challenging external environment, the book presents a compelling case on the need for clusters to evolve to survive." --Singapore Economic Review
