"...McNamara makes the case that Korea's post-1965 economic success and its politial economy is inexplicable without understanding the colonial legacy. This argument is a corrective to the existing literature on colonialism in Korea, and his case studies have much to contribute to the study of colonial history." Meredith Woo-Cumings, Journal of Asian and African Studies "This well-written study examines the experience of capitalism in the Republic of Korea during the years of Japan's colonial rule... This study is a useful addition to growing literature that attempts to analyze factors contributing to strong economic growth in South Korea during the last two decades." J. S. Uppal, SUNY at Albany, in Choice "Dennis McNamara's book is a welcome addition to the history of countries that have had to industrialize without even their leading enterprises benefitting from the competitive asset of pioneering products and processes." Alice H. Amsden, Business History Review "...a well-organized account of the constraints the Japanese placed on Korean entrepreneurs..." Kenneth M. Wells, Journal of Asian History
