This book has investigated the implications of three decades of market-oriented economic reform for Asian workers. Using a conceptual framework that centers on labor systems and their regulatory regimes, it has drawn together disparate literatures on institutional change, labor relations, social policy, and development that directly or indirectly help elucidate the labor implications of market reform. It has also discussed the industrial sectors of the four Asian countries to illustrate contrasting contexts and trajectories of reform in the region. Finally, it has suggested a more general analytical framework that focuses on the dynamic relationship between two dimensions, or faces, of labor market reform: labor market deregulation and labor market reregulation.
