East vs. West

Exploring International Development

Author(s): Hugh Dang, Brad Gilmour, Jennifer Ma

Book Description

This book explores international development, contrasting the Eastern and Western experiences. It shows that, in the East, the Chinese experience has, in recent years, become shorthand for economic development and internationalization. China continues to build its society on an agricultural basis while simultaneously adapting to technological and institutional innovations.

The volume highlights that, in global societies, both capitalistic and communistic, the nature of innovation has increasingly come to influence individual and common lives. It traverses the architecture journey in India, and bestows a clarity on the directions still to be taken.
