The Economic Development of Modern Japan, 1945-1995: From Occupation to the Bubble Economy

This important collection throws light on the historical development and evolution of the economy, society and institutions in post-war Japan. It covers trends in economic development and looks at areas such as the debate on the role and significance of industrial policy; the evolution of financial and banking systems; the changing patterns of labour relations; land reform and agricultural change; and the broader economic and social structures of modern Japan. This two-volume set brings together the significant articles around these themes, including less well-known work first published in Japan. It will be an essential reference work for scholars and students of history, economics, political science and Asian studies.
