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.

`Steven Tolliday has produced an excellent sequel to his earlier work with a similar title. . .' -- Prabhu Guptara, Journal of Japanese Trade and Industry `Was there really a Japanese miracle? Did industrial policy make any difference? Is the stagnation of the last decade a refutation of all that was said about the Japanese model in the 1980s? Or just the other side of the medal? Or a temporary blip? Tolliday has done a marvellous job of bringing the evidence together from an extraordinarily wide range of resources - and demonstrating thereby how far the depth and density of English-language analysis of the Japanese economy has improved in recent years.' -- Ronald Dore, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
