This book looks at lessons to be learned from the phenomenon of economic growth in East Asian countries.

Alongside such growth, countries such as Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea have made progress in terms of human development indicators and the percentage of the population living in poverty has fallen.How have these countries managed to combine growth with equity?

Kevin Watkins examines the various social policies adopted by governments in the region, which have enabled the benefits of growth and prosperity to be widely shared, whilst highlighting that not all the lessons are positive - some ethnic groups have been excluded from the general improvements in living standards, as have certain areas of particular countries.

The book critically assesses the successes, failures and future potential, of the East Asian "Tigers".
