Economic and demographic change in preindustrial Japan, 1600-1868 by Susan B Hanley( Book )

19 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the Marxist interpretation still dominant in Japanese studies, the last century and a half of the Tokugawa period was a time of economic and demographic stagnation. Professors Hanley and Yamamura argue that a more satisfactory explanation can be provided within the framework of modem economic theory, and they advance and test three important new hypotheses in this book.The authors suggest that the Japanese economy grew throughout the Tokugawa period, though slowly by modern standards and unevenly. This growth, they show, tended to exceed the rate of population increase even in the poorer regions, thus raising the living standard despite major famines. Population growth was controlled by a variety of methods, including abortion and infanticide, for the primary purpose of raising the standard of living. Contrary to the prevailing view of scholars, thus, the conclusions advanced here indicate that the basis for Japan's rapid industrialization in the Meiji period was in many ways already established during the latter part of the Tokugawa period. The authors' analysis combines original fieldwork with study of data based on findings of the postwar years.Originally published in 1978.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Asia in Japan's embrace : building a regional production alliance by Walter Hatch( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan has a growing presence throughout the Asian region, and Walter Hatch and Kozo Yamamura find that many standard Japanese business practices have been transplanted. Central to this argument is the concept of cooperation between industry and government, labor and management, and even independent firms belonging to the same keiretsu (enterprise group). This cooperation allows a complex web of quasi-integrated vertical production networks to develop. The book shows that such strategic control of technology is a unique model of globalization. The authors recommend ways in which damaging 'trade wars' between Japan and the West can be avoided, making this book essential reading for businesspeople, policymakers, academics, and students

The economic emergence of modern Japan by Kōzō Yamamura( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Economic Emergence of Modern Japan is a useful book for those interested in how Japan succeeded in transforming an agricultural economy into an advanced industrial economy. This volume brings together chapters from The Cambridge History of Japan, Volumes 5 and 6, and The Cambridge Economic History of Europe, Volume 7, part 2. Each of the seven chapters, written by leading specialists in Japanese economic history, explains in an authoritative, detailed analysis how institutions, the behaviour of individuals and firms, and official policies changed in order to enable Japan to accumulate capital, adopt new technology, ensure a skilled labour-force, and increase exports of manufactured goods. The authors pay special attention to distinctive Japanese institutions and policies, the effect of the Tokugawa legacy, and the impact of various wars, and the global economy

The end of diversity? : prospects for German and Japanese capitalism( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their introduction, Yamamura and Streeck summarize the crises of performance and confidence that have beset German and Japanese capitalism and revived the question of competitive convergence. The editors ask whether the two countries, confronted with the political and economic exigencies of technological revolution and economic internationalization, must abandon their distinctive institutions and the competitive advantages these have yielded in the past, or whether they can adapt and retain such institutions, thereby preserving the social cohesion and economic competitiveness of their societies

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1992, a year before his death, Yasusuke Murakami published in Japanese An Anticlassical Political-Economic Analysis: A Vision for the Next Century (English translation, Stanford, 1996). A work that distilled decades of research and thought by a distinguished economic theorist turned social scientist and philosopher, it sold more than 25,000 copies in Japan despite its highly scholarly nature. The book enjoyed such immediate recognition because it offered a sanguine vision for the community of nations and because of Murakami's vision was supported by acute insights on, and seminal analyses of the crucial issues relating to economic growth, equality, peace, and cultural diversity we face at the end of the twentieth century

The Cambridge history of Japan by Kōzō Yamamura( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third volume of the Cambridge History of Japan is devoted to the three and a half centuries spanning the final decades of the twelfth century when the Kamakura bakufu was founded to the mid-sixteenth century when civil wars raged following the demise of the Muromachi bakufu. Volume 3 contains 13 specially commissioned essays written by leading Japanese and American scholars that survey the historical events and developments in medieval Japan's polity, economy, society and culture, as well as its relations with its Asian neighbours. The essays reflect the most recent scholarly research on the history of this period. The volume creates a rich tapestry of the events that took place during these colourful centuries, when the warrior class ruled Japan, institutions underwent fundamental transformations, the economy grew steadily, and Japanese culture and society evolved with surprising vitality to leave legacies that still characterize and affect contemporary Japan. A meticulously prepared glossary of terms and a chronological table of major historical events and developments are included

An anticlassical political-economic analysis : a vision for the next century by Yasusuke Murakami( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his final work, one that distills decades of research and thought, a distinguished economic thinker turned social scientist and philosopher confronts three crucial questions facing the world at the end of the century: How and in what form can a harmonious and stable post-cold war world order be created? How can the world maintain the economic performance necessary for the well-being of people while minimizing international economic conflicts and further deterioration of the world's environment? What must be done to safeguard the freedoms of all peoples? In attempting to answer these questions, Murakami criticizes classical political-economic analysis and offers his own "anticlassical" analyses and visions for the next century. By classical political-economic analysis, Murakami refers to analyses of power politics based on the nation-state system and to classical and neoclassical economic analysis which holds that unimpeded competition and free trade are fundamental bases for increasing wealth for the benefit of all. Murakami's anticlassical stance takes the form of a new, intellectually integrated and reasoned concept called "polymorphic liberalism," which argues that traditional "progressivism"--The belief that humans have an ultimate unique path on which they will reach an ideal social and political-economic system - can no longer meet today's challenges
