This book explores the substantial and dynamic innovations of the wartime era, identifying this period as the most influential for Japan's post-war economic structure. Erich Pauer and a team of leading Japanese and German scholars discuss important aspects of the Japanese wartime economy, including:

* ideological background

* the Japanese 'planned economy'

* technical mobilization

* women and the war economy

* socio-economic change

* food shortages, the black market and economic crime

* national policy companies

* financial reforms


'In making these findings available to a non-Japanese audience Pauer and his colleagues have provided a useful guide to a considerable body of otherwise barely accessible literature on the role of the war in Japan's long-term development.' - Kenneth D. Brown, The Economic History Review
