About this book

The author aims to develop conceptual refining and theoretical reframing of the productivist welfare capitalism thesis in order to address a set of questions concerning whether and how productivist welfarism has experienced both continuity and change in East Asia.

Reviews

“Kim's main thesis is compelling, and any graduate reading list on East Asian social policy would be enriched by the addition of this text, as it succinctly challenges the orthodoxy that there is a singular welfare model for East Asia in a cogent and accessible manner.” (Tom Emery, Social Policy Administration, Vol. 53 (3), May, 2018)


'The book offers an empirically rich and theoretically nuanced discussion of the continuities and changes in welfare capitalism in China, South Korea and Singapore. Its comparative focus and consideration of political and economic factors at both national and international levels distinguish it from most other writings on the subject.' -M. Ramesh, Lee Kuan Yew School of Publi Policy, Singapore

'In this historically rooted, empirically rich investigation, the book offers fresh insights into the longstanding question of the nature of welfare regimes in East Asia, arguing that there is now a strong case to be made for the institutional variation of productivist welfare capitalism.' -Gyu-Jin Hwang, University of Sydney, Australia

'Comparative Welfare Capitalism in East Asia presents solid and convincing comparative research on welfare regimes in East Asia with a focus on South Korea, Singapore, and China. It provides both theoretical and empirical analysis of the institutional divergence of productivist welfarism in East Asia. This book represents the most updated academic efforts in comparative research on social policy development in East Asia.' -Ngok Kinglun, Sun Yat-Sen University, China
