Japanese Economic Development: Theory and Practice
Routledge, 7 feb 2002 - 320 pagina's
This newly revised, clearly-presented text looks at Japan's economic history from the nineteenth century through to World War II. Working within a framework based on the theories and approaches of development studies, Francks demonstrates the relevance of Japan's pre-war experience to the problems facing developing countries today, and draws out the historical roots of the institutions and practices on which Japan's post-war economic miracle was based. New features include:
* fresh theoretical perspectives
* additional material derived from new sources
* an increased number of case studies
* fully up-dated references and bibliography.
This broad-ranging textbook is both topical and easy-to-use and will be of immense use to those seeking an understanding of Japanese economic development.
