I find the above of a great penetration.
Yes, even the bourgeois states of South and East Asia owe whatever
development they reached to the Chinese Revolution. In the Korean and
Taiwanese cases, and less clearly in the Indian one, it was the
imperialist fear of a "Chinese" contagion that provided an umbrella for
some degree of self-centered capitalist development.
I would add that perhaps even Japan does.
