Abstract

The notion of the “developmental state” has a long and illustrious lineage in the literature on development in Asia and more broadly in the literature on international political economy and development. Indeed, over the last fifty years or so it has been the dominant mans of explaining the remarkable and rapid transformation of various states in Asia; notably, the economic transformation of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and, more recently, China.

In this chapter we outline the intellectual linage and debates culminating in the moniker of the “developmental state,” the tensions with and within this literature, and more recently questions concerning its continuing relevance in the face of structural changes in the composition of the global political economy.
