"...offers stimulating, informative, and authoritative accounts of the enduring issues that affect IT in the region. The volume should therefore serve as an important standard reference in what has become a very large literature on the subject, and would be a very useful addition in advanced courses on Asian political economy and high-tech industrial development." - East Asian Science, Technology, and Medicine "Making IT harvests a bumper crop of useful information, facts, and figures... Making IT is solidly informative about the origins and evolutions of IT industries in Asia." - Business History Review "Making IT is an excellent work of collective scholarship. The book provides a wealth of information on one of the most striking episodes in economic development of the past few decades - the rise to global prominence in the IT sector of a part of the world that had long been regarded as a technological backwater." - Nathan Rosenberg, Stanford University "The great strength of Making IT lies in its detailed case studies of Taiwan, India, Singapore, Korea, China, and Japan. The comparative focus on high-tech clusters and the explicit comparisons to Silicon Valley as the leader and model make an excellent contribution to our understanding of the high-tech cluster phenomenon and the ongoing competitive rise of the Asian economies considered in the book." - Hugh Patrick, Columbia University
