Summary "Thanks to the inroads made by the International Monetary Fund and the 'war on terror,' America has lost much of the soft power it enjoyed in Asia during the early 1990s. The winners, by default, are some of the world's most undemocratic development models such as Sino-globalism. 'Asian values' took a hard blow from the Asian Crash, but have returned in this even more virulent form. The West is left sitting on the sidelines of a distinctly Asian contest of development with or without freedom." "Development Without Freedom explores this crucial trial-by-development which will define the politics of globalization for decades to come. Case-study rich, the volume provides an interesting look at Asian politics and Asian globalization based on the insights of Amartya Sen, giving particular focus to Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, China and India, and the ways in which Senism has affected each of them."--BOOK JACKET
