The Challenge of the Korean Way of Working

The History and Challenge of South Korea's Economic Miracle

  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Robert P. Kearney
  • First Edition; Henry Holt and Company
  • Copyright 1991 by Robert P. Kearney

" A nation devastated by war transforms its people into the world's most militantly dedicated and organized labor force and transforms itself into a global competitor.
It boasts the world's largest steel plant and textile plant, the tallest building in Asia, the most successful introduction of an export car in history.
Japan, right ? Wrong.
South Korea has experienced the most remarkable turnaround of any nation in modern history.
In just three decades. despite endemic political corruption, the scars of centuries of foreign domination, and an unending state of war with Korea's fanatically hostile northern half, South Korea has truly wrought an economic miracle. "

" The engine that drives this economic supertrain is a workforce more disciplined and hardworking than even the Japanese, on whom the South Koreans consciously model themselves.
Now they, in turn, are the model for other Asian and developing nations. "

" But what about the darker side of success ?
The rigid authoritarianism in every aspect of society, the governmental repression of dissent and protest ?
Must the conditions under which prosperity was born remain permanently or does prosperity hold the seed of greater political and civil liberties ? "

" Interweaving history, first-hand reportage, interviews, and personal insight, The Warrior Worker details South Korea's controversial triumph.
It offers a provocative view of that country's mounting challenge to the United States, Europe, and Japan and will be of vital interest to everyone concerned with the future of business strategy and practice. "
