Japanese industrialisation : historical and cultural perspectives by Ian Inkster ( Book )
12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Japanese Industrialisation features detailed treatments of East Asia, China, the US and 'the West' as essential parts of the global context of Japanese historical experience. It considers many of the unusual institutional features of Japan's corporate enterprise and political regime and controversially interprets them as deliberate expressions of industrialisation under conditions of late development and escape from Western colonialism. It also identifies many of the constraints on future growth as geopolitical rather than cultural or environmental. This book is an essential resource for students and academics in areas including Asian Studies, Japanese History and Industrial Development."--BOOK JACKET
