Social development in Asia by Kwong-Leung Tang( )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection documents social development in the Asian countries of China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and India and concludes that social development has lagged behind economic development. This has given rise to 'distorted development' in many countries. Serious development problems of poverty and inequalities have lingered even in those economically advanced countries of Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore. These problems have been exacerbated in the wake of the Asian economic crisis. In order to harmonize social development with economic growth, Asian states ought to be more proactive in their development agendas." "As a text on social development in Asia, this book is primarily intended for practitioners and students of social work, social administration, and social policy. It is also relevant for students and practitioners of sociology, economics, and public policy."--BOOK JACKET
Social welfare development in East Asia by Kwong-Leung Tang( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comparative social policy has long neglected welfare development in Asia. Not much is known about social welfare in the economically successful East Asian tigers (Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan). They are late starters in social welfare but each has its own trajectory of welfare development. Despite the presence of extensive social welfare, they have shied away from Western-style welfare states. The presence of strong developmental states and their development ethos explain in large part the underdevelopment of state welfare
Social security, the economy and development by James Midgley( Book )

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the complex relationship between social security and economic development, arguing that social security contributes positively to economic development by promoting social investments that not only foster economic growth but enhance social welfare for all. The contributors analyse the various forms of social security, and, through comprehensive analysis of country experiences, demonstrates that the relationship between social security and economic development defies the simplistic interpretations currently popular in literature on the subject. A variety of country case studies are explored including Britain, Chile, China, India, Korea, Norway, Singapore, South Africa and the United States. This topical volume is a vital companion for all interested in the dynamics of the relationship between social security and the economy.--Résumé de l'éditeur

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One way to describe the importance of social policy is to say it's about 'what is and what might be.'

Based on a study of a mid-level city in China, these three scholars provide analysis and offer theory-based recommendations on health care development

Comparative theories of social policy development : a historical-quantitative study of Hong Kong by Kwong-Leung Tang( )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debates on the comparative analysis of welfare states have been guided by one important question: What determines the welfare-state development? While various theoretical approaches have been formulated giving different answers to this question, empirical research is dominated by three schools of thought: the industrial society perspective, the social democratic model and the state-centered theory. The field of comparative social policy research is unsatisfactory; it is plagued by problems of inconsistent results, artificial dichotomy of quantitative and qualitative methodologies, and an obvious neglect of developing countries. This study attempts to remedy this deficiency by looking at the determinants of social policy in developing countries in general and Hong Kong in particular. Methodologically, there is a clear advantage to integrate quantitative and qualitative research. Using an integrated approach of quantitative and historical analysis, the study applies a range of variables from the dominant theories of social policy development to the case of Hong Kong
