Most popular at the top

  • East Asian Lawby Lucie Cheng; Arthur Rosett; Margaret Woo

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 54.95

    This work explores the tension in East Asia between the trend towards a convergence of legal practices in the direction of a universal model and a reassertion of local cultural practices. The trend towards convergence arises in part from 'globalisation', from 'rule of law programs' promulgated by institutions such as the International Monetary Fund... more...

  • Competition Policy in East Asiaby Erlinda Medalla

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    Competition Policy in East Asia clarifies the key issues and provides a framework for understanding competition policy, looking in-depth at a number of regulated sectors for additional perspectives. Until two or three decades ago, competition and consumer protection policies were the preserve of the major developed economies like the United States,... more...

  • Law and Development in East and South-East Asiaby Christoph Antons

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 47.95

    During the 1980s and 1990s Asian 'developmental states' attracted much attention in political science and economics literature, but the role of law in the economic development was neglected. It was only after the Asian crisis of 1997 that many analysts began to focus on a lack of regulation and transparency as a major factor triggering the crisis.... more...

  • Support for Victims of Crime in Asiaby Wing-Cheong Chan

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 74.95

    Giving victims of crime a greater role in the criminal justice system is a relatively recent development, a trend likely to continue and increase in the foreseeable future. In many jurisdictions it has led to compensation schemes funded by the state, support for victims of crime to help them recover from their ordeal, and involvement of victims in... more...

  • Transforming Corporate Governance in East Asiaby Curtis Milhaupt; Kon-Sik Kim; Hideki Kanda

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    Over the past ten years, the corporate governance environment in East Asia has undergone a significant transformation. The Asian Financial crisis, together with Japan?s long economic malaise, undermined confidence in the corporate structures, governance practices, and regulatory oversight of firms in the region. Since that time, each of the countries... more...

  • Administrative Law and Governance in Asiaby Tom Ginsburg; Albert H.Y. Chen

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 51.95

    This book examines administrative law in Asia, exploring the profound changes in the legal regimes of many Asian states that have taken place in recent years. Political democratization in some countries, economic change more broadly and the forces of globalization have put pressure on the developmental state model, wherein bureaucrats governed in... more...

  • Neoliberalism and Institutional Reform in East Asiaby Professor Meredith Jung-En Woo

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 125.00

    This book brings together scholars of political economy, law and sociology to interrogate the seemingly unproblematic notions - the rules of law, good corporate governance, and flexible labour market - that inform neoliberal policy prescriptions. It also discusses how these concepts have been translated and practiced in East Asia. more...

  • Intellectual Property in Asiaby Peter Ganea; Paul Goldstein; Joseph Straus; Tanuja V. Garde; Ashley Isaacson Woolley

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 148.01

  • Regulation in Asiaby John Gillespie; Randall Peerenboom

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 63.95

    Unlike much analysis about regulation in Asia which focuses on globalisation and the transplant effect, leaving domestic influence over commercial regulation under-researched and under-theorized, this book focuses on how local actors influence regulatory change. It explores the complex economic and regulatory factors that generate social demand for... more...
