Education and Development in East Asia.
Morris, Paul, Ed.; Sweeting, Anthony, Ed.
This book examines the specific role that formal education has played in the development process of the East Asian regions since World War II. The essays emphasize education's role as a source of growth and analyze its links with economic, social, and political domains in the post-war period. The writers hope to demonstrate both the changing nature of education's role within the countries and the varied nature of its role across the countries. Chapters include: (1) "Education and Development: An Introduction" (Paul Morris); (2) "Japan" (Wing On Lee); (3) "Hong Kong" (Anthony Sweeting); (4) "Singapore" (Saravanan Gopinathan); (5) "Taiwan" (Yi Rong Young); (6) "South Korea" (Chon Sun Ihm); (7) "Malaysia" (Hena Mukherjee; Jasbir Sarjit Singh); (8) "Macau" (Mark Bray); (9) "The People's Republic of China" (Yat Ming Leung); and (10) "Education and Development in East Asia: An Overview" (Paul Morris; Anthony Sweeting). The document concludes an extensive bibliography. (EH)
