This multi-disciplinary book not only offers a close examination of the dynamics and politico-economic significance of Korea's 1997 financial and economic crisis but also provides an accurate assessment of the intertwining economic, social, political and cultural aspects of the relationship between foreign investment and Korea's new changing economic and market environment, as well as an encompassing analysis of the historical shaping of Korea's current political economy. The micro-specific and firm-level nature of the book provides qualitative insights into the Korean business mindset while exploring how multinational corporations mesh with the Korean marketplace in the prevailing, yet continually changing, economic and market environment. In particular, this book expands further the market analysis offering a cohesive exploration of the political economic framework, which comprises a detailed appraisal of the social, political, cultural and institutional changes reflected in the course of Korea's capitalist industrial development.
