'This book provides an excellent comparative introduction to the international political economy of the two countries, particularly useful for teaching about East Asia because of its firm historical focus in each of the cases. In the one place, we get both well-rounded historical overviews of a number of major policy issues and an introduction to the current state of play' - Stephan Haggard, The China Journal, January 2008
