Economic structure and the politics of sectoral bias: East Asian and other cases

Economic structure and the politics of sectoral bias: East Asian and other cases

Journal of Development Studies 29(4): 79-128

Adherents of the rational choice approach to political analysis claim to provide an explanation of the causes of this pattern.
