This book looks at Korea's economic, social and spatial development processes from the early Modernisation period to the financial crisis of 1997. It focuses on the political and ideological control of the state during the developmental era, as well as the environmental problems of Korea, and examines how society and environment have been used as means to attain rapid accumulation. It reveals the main characteristics of Korean economy growth and social control, and argues that the financial crisis of 1997 was inevitable. It provides a holistic approach to Korean development, which allows a comprehensive view of Korea's economic miracle as well as its recent problems.
