    The Silicon Dragon

    Terence Tsai, Bor-Shiuan Cheng
    The Silicon Dragon is a systematic study of the growth of high-tech giants in the Greater China Region, depicting the success story of the microelectronics industry in Taiwan.

    Information Communication Technology and Economic Development

    Edited by Tojo Thatchenkery, Roger R. Stough
