This core textbook is the definitive overview of the Japanese economy. The book charts its history from the period before the Meiji restoration and its astonishing growth throughout the twentieth century before conducting a thorough analysis of the contemporary scene and the implications of the ongoing financial crisis.

Written by a leading authority in the field, this is the only book to include substantive material on post-crisis Japan and it includes key material on international trade and foreign direct investment.

Timely and topical, this book gives a clear overview of the Japanese economy.
