The growth of the japanese economy is one of the most remarkable events of the world economy since the end of the second World War. Professor Shirasishi describes and analyses Japan's foreign trade policies from 1945 onwards and considers the part they played in the economic expansion of the 1960s, teh oil-shock of the 1970s, and consequent growth, with the leadership of MITI and the response of industry. It is these policies that constitute one of the most important aspects of Japan's recent economic history.
