Description
Summary:"Japan's economic growth in the wake of the Second World War was extraordinarily rapid. The August 1945 surrender is often taken as the starting point for studies of this growth, but it is now accepted that a continuous line of economic development may be traced from the pre- to postwar periods. Japan's War Economy explores the substantial and dynamic innovations of the wartime era, identifying this period as the most influential for the country's postwar economic structure." "Japan's War Economy will prove essential reading for economists, historians and political scientists working in this growing area of research."--BOOK JACKET.
