Beschrijving Routledge Advances in Korean Studies: Digital Development in Korea

Digital Development in Korea explores the central role of digital information and communication technology in South Korea’s development, starting with and building upon the crucial developments of the 1980s. It presents a network-centric perspective to help an international audience place Korea’s digital development in clearer context, politically, economically, socially and in relation to such broad secular trends as globalization, urbanization and sustainability. The book draws upon studies of the information society, the network society, developmental state theory and strategic restructuring. Firsthand experience of the lead author helps to explain the formulation and implementation of key policy decisions. The analysis also identifies aspects of the Korean experience from which developing countries around the world might benefit.


Oh and Larson describe the revolutionary developments of the 1980s including the TDX electronic switching system, a major surge forward in semiconductors, the start of privatization and color television and the thoroughgoing restructuring that literally created a telecommunications sector and business where none had previously existed. They further explore government leadership, the growing private sector and international developments affecting the diffusion of broadband mobile communication. This second edition includes expanded emphasis on the role of ICT in green growth and sustainability, and also how concerns over public safety as well as the hosting of the Olympic games are shaping next generation digital networks. The role of education in these developments is explored in detail, along with both positive and negative aspects of Korea’s vibrant new digital media. The book also looks at Korea’s growing international involvement, its role in efforts to build a world information society and finally its future place in cyberspace.


This book will be of interest to students, scholars and policymakers interested in communications technologies, Asian/Korean studies and developmental studies.
