03 Oct 1994 12:00

That is, the growth of East Asian market economies since, say, the Second World War.

East Asian views of what happened and why. Western views; compared with views of Prussia/Germany in the late 19th century and and early 20th; with views of Soviet Union in the early years. Third-world views. Significance, as sources of export earnings, of drugs, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, sex tourism. Connections to political repression, democracy, learning and the arts. Comparison to earlier industrialization of Japan --- connections to that?
