Dear Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce the new publication of "After-Development Dynamics: South Korea's Engagement with Contemporary Asia" (Oxford University Press, 2015). Apologies in advance for any cross-postings.

While the volume has a particular political economy framework resting on the endogenous challenges arising out of South Korea's economic prosperity, the responses to them are covered in three parts. Scholars of international business are likely to find many of these chapters of interest. There are three parts to the volume. The first part covers regional integration, including a chapter on Korea's green growth strategy and animation industry. The second part has several essays on Korea's MNE experiences of transferring production and employment systems to India, China, and Indonesia in the automotive and high technology sectors, Korea's patent strategy in China, and POSCO's investment problems in India. The final part is about migration to Korea and includes chapters on foreign students and professionals in Korea. The final chapter presents some approaches to resolving emergent domestic problems. Most of the contributors teach in business programs in South Korea and elsewhere.
