    In an effort to provide some answers to the question of how Japan was able to industrialize and achieve technological superiority so quickly, the book examines technology and development in Japan from the Meiji period to the present. The author focuses on such key aspects as iron and steel, transportation, textiles, mining, financial institutions, rural and urban society, small-scale industry, female labour, education, general trading companies, and technology policy.
