Description
‘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

This important collection throws light on the historical development and evolution of the economy, society and institutions in post-war Japan.

Contents
46 articles, dating from 1983 to 1997 Contributors include: A. Chimoto, N. Kawabe, T. Kawagoe, M. Mason, H. Miyajima, T. Okazaki, H. Patrick, R. Smith, Y. Yasuba, S. Yonekura

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.
