Law, Capitalism and Power in Asia: The Rule of Law and Legal Institutions (Paperback)Kanishka Jayasuriya (editor)
Paperback 360 Pages / Published: 03/12/1998
- Publisher out of stock
A challenging and provocative book that contests the liberal assumption that the rule of law will go hand in hand with a transition to market-based economies and even democracy in East Asia. Using case studies from Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan and Vietnam, the authors argue that the rule of law is in fact more likely to provide political elites with the means closely to control civil society. It is essential, therefore, to locate conceptions of judicial independence and the rule of law more generally within the ideological vocabulary of the state.
