Book Description

This book, first published in 1989, includes essays on a number of the most important topics in Japanese education as well as the highly selected, and annotated, bibliographies. It is the editors' belief that understanding educational matters requires insight into the historical context, and have therefore placed contemporary Japanese educational matters in historical perspective.
