About the publication

This timely book examines how the countries of East Asia coped with the
          vast pool of international capital that flowed into the region during the early 1990s. East Asia appeared to be doing well. But, as this book was in preparation in 1997, a currency crisis sent capital fleeing and catapulted the East Asian economies into turmoil. Country-specific updates describe events since July 1997, how government authorities addressed the crisis, and what lessons can be learned.
