Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2003 - Business & Economics - 440 pages
This is the first volume to appear in what will be a definitive multi-volume series covering the whole of modern Japanese economic history. Dual Structure covers the first half of the twentieth century when Japan's economic modernization brought the country into the circle of world powers between the two world wars; the economic system established in the Second World War transformed the economy; and postwar reconstruction provided the foundations for an extraordinary economic dynamism.
