Summary
"This book tells the story of South Korea's and Taiwan's economic successes and Argentina's and Mexico's relative "failures" through a historical examination of each country's middle classes and how they facilitated or limited the state's capacities to discipline capitalists during key phases of twentieth-century industrialization. It also raises questions about the likelihood that such disciplining can continue in a world context where globalization squeezes middle classes and frees capitalists from state and social contracts in which they historically have been embedded."--BOOK JACKET
