Description

Using Taiwan's third largest export industry - shoe manufacturing - as a case study, this work contends that economic development can be tied to Taiwan's own cultural history as well as to the influx of foreign capital or the initiatives of the state government.

Table of Contents

As in previous editions, this highly practical book is written with beginning MPA students and practitioners in mind. It focuses on the interpretation and use of research findings, not just number crunching. It covers the entire research process, from initial questions to final report, in clear, jargon-free language, and includes numerous easy-to-understand examples and exercises that provide opportunities for concrete applications of the concepts. It is solidly grounded in public administration and recognizes both the promise and limitations of research within a political environment.
