Intra-Asian trade and the world market by A. J. H Latham( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intra-Asian trade is a major theme of recent writing on Asian economic history. From the second half of the nineteenth century, intra-Asian trade flows linked Asia into an integrated economic system, with reciprocal benefits for all participants. But although this was a network from which all gained, there was also considerable inter-Asian competition between Asian producers for these Asian markets, and those of the wider world. This collection presents captivating snap-shots of trade in specific commodities, alongside chapters comprehensively covering the region. The book covers: China's relative backwardness, Japanese copper exports, Japan's fur trade, Siam's luxury rice trade, Korea, Japanese shipbuilding, the silk trade, the refined sugar trade, competition in the rice trade, the Japanese cotton textile trade to Africa, multilateral settlements in Asia, the cotton textile trade to Britain, and the growth of the palm oil industry in Malaysia and Indonesia. The opening of Asia, especially in Japan and China, liberated the creative forces of the market within the new intra-Asian economy.; Filling a particular gap in the literature on intra-Asian trade prior to the twentieth century, this is an insightful study that makes a considerable contribution to our knowledge of the Asian trade both prior to, and after, the arrival of colonial states. It will be of great interest to historians and economists focusing on Asia
The Lancashire cotton industry and its rivals : international competition in cotton goods in the late nineteenth century : Britain versus India, China, and Japan by Heita Kawakatsu( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study based on his original research, undertaken in Oxford and subsequently in Japan, covers the important nexus established between Japan and the United Kingdom in the nineteenth century with the export of cotton textiles (of higher quality) from Britain to Asia. This historical link between key industries in our two countries is now happily mirrored in current scholarship, of which this is a prime example. It is no function of a brief preface to replicate the conclusions of detailed research but to emphansize the sider context of the research which lies behind the text of this book, which I am most happy to endorse. -- Jacket

Asia and the History of the International Economy : Essays in Memory of Peter Mathias( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays sheds new light on many aspects of Asias integration with the international economy. H.I.H. Crown Prince Naruhito discusses the problems of controlling water in the interest of urban development. He first examines the problems encountered on the River Thames in relationship to the growth of London in the eighteenth century, and then relates his findings to Japan where similar problems arose with respect to the expansion of Edo (Tokyo). Other chapters looking at the eighteenth century examine the development of plant collecting in Asia and the wider world in the interest of the economy and leisure, Japans connections with the outside world by way of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), and the Dutch acquisition of the knowledge of the Japanese language at their base at Dejima Island, Nagasaki. India features next with achapter showing how India was crucial in initiating the industrial revolution in Britain, by stimulating British manufacturers to copy the fine textiles made by hand loom weavers there. This is followed by a chapter showing how in the late nineteenth century India was the central pivot in the entire international economic system, based on its trading surplus with China. Otherdiscussions trace the role of Scotland as a centre of heavy industry and shipbuilding, with Scottish companies dominating the shipping lanes of Asia. A furtherchapter shows how British connections with Asia, in this case Shanghai, brought problems of debt and non payment, and outlines the steps taken to try to control the situation. Elsewhere problems arose in Bangkok over the quality of rice being supplied to European merchants in the 1920s, leading to a decline in sales. Finally there is a discussion of Japanese commercial policy towards Africa in the inter-war period. This book will be of interest and use to students, researchers, and general readers interested in Asias role in world economic development."--Provided by publisher
