The Economic Development of Modern Japan, 1945-1995
From Occupation to the Bubble Economy. Elgar Mini Series
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.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'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
