This volume analyses the recent financial upheaval in East Asian countries, long considered model economies, quite immune to such afflictions.

In tracing the origins of the financial crisis in South Asia and examining the different phases, Rakshit re-examines the main stream theories and policies, and draws some interesting analytical and policy conclusions.
In order to enable the readers to have a deeper understanding of the issues examined in connection with the Asian experience, the first section of the book, 'Currency Crisis: manifestations and theories', discuss the evolution of the international financial system and currency regimes since the second world war
The final part of the book,' Stock taking: analytical and prescriptive' recapitulate how the East Asian experience differed from the earlier episodes of currency turmoil, examines some of its analytical implications and evaluate in this connection the efficacy of alternative domestic and international policies for guarding against upheavals in the foreign exchange market and limiting their damaging impact.
