Locating Neoliberalism in East Asia: Neoliberalizing Spaces in Developmental States examines the influence of neo–liberal ideologies on urban and regional policies and practices in several Asian Pacific nations. Exploring the evolving relationship between the two political economies, contributors from Asia and other international experts look at the ways neo–liberal ideology has materialized in Asian urban and regional settings and examine how neo–liberal axioms have been used to justify urban and regional projects. Readings reveal how neoliberalism in many East Asian regions is actually the outcome of highly sophisticated and conflictual interactions between the institutional legacies of state–led developmentalism and neoliberal discourses and practices. In essence, this collection of essays offers illuminating insights on the global effects of neo–liberalism while shaping our understanding of contemporary political–economic transformations in Asia.
