Dear Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce the publication of "After-Development Dynamics:
South Korea's Engagements with Contemporary Asia" (Oxford University Press,
2015). Apologies in advance for any cross-postings.

While the volume has a particular political economy framework resting on
the endogenous challenges arising out of South Korea's economic prosperity,
the responses to them are covered in three parts. Scholars of international
business are likely to find many of these chapters of interest. There are
three parts to the volume. The first part covers regional integration,
including a chapter on Korea's green growth strategy and animation
industry. The second part has several essays on Korea's MNE experiences of
transferring production and employment systems to India, China, and
Indonesia in the automotive and high technology sectors, Korea's patent
strategy in China, and POSCO's investment problems in India. The final part
is about migration to Korea and includes chapters on foreign students and
professionals in Korea. The final chapter presents some approaches to
resolving emergent domestic problems. Most of the contributors teach in
business programs in South Korea and elsewhere.
