Britain and Japan: a comparative economic and social history since 1900
To compare Britain and Japan over the course of the last century is to juxtapose two societies at very different stages of development. This being the case the two countries still have many similarities including established systems of ritual and religious belief, empire and nationality, education, and large scale participation in two world wars. The application of Halsey's model when comparing Britain and Japan creates a comprehensive analysis of two seemingly different countries evolving in the same international environment. Kenneth Brown's use of literature covering the economic history of these countries over the last century is unique and will add greatly to existing material.
