'... an important contribution ... it stands alone for its quality and comprehensiveness and is an excellent base from which to study Singapore and the prospects of the east Asian region generally.' The Financial Times '... refreshing and sometimes thought provoking. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with export-led growth processes. But its audience is much wider; namely, vitually everyone - scholars, business, and lay persons - interested in Singapore's economy, past, present, and future as well as the economy of Southeast Asia generally. The book may become a classic.' J. Norman Parmer, Trinity University
