About this book


Northeast Asian steel industries have developed global production networks, but by spanning multiple national spaces, these networks unite many national economies while belonging exclusively to none. Who, therefore, is in control? Jeffrey D. Wilson examines how states and firms coordinate their activities to govern global production.

"This volume is a major contribution to our understanding of the political-economy of the Asia-Pacific generally and of the region's steel industry in particular. Theoretically innovative and empirically rich, this is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the pivotal role of production networks in shaping this dynamic region." - Mark Beeson, Winthrop Professor in Political Science and International Relations, The University of Western Australia, Crawley, Australia
