This short book provides an overview of Japanese economic history between 1868 and 1941. It introduces and surveys the current state of scholarship on Japan, touching upon almost all elements of the Japanese historical experience.

'[This book] provides an excellent bibliography, opens windows onto a fascinating and important subject ... [and] constitutes a finely crafted introductory essay on Japanese economic history.' Gustav Ranis, Economic History Review 'This small but useful book introduces and surveys the current state of scholarship on Japan. It raises important questions and shows the range of interpretations ... One can only admire the incisiveness of the text; it is always easier to say more than less.' Richard Rice, Journal of Economic History
