About the Book

This addition to the Routledge Library of Modern Japan brings together the most significant studies in recent years on science, technology and research and development in Japan.

Drawn from a broad range of journals, research monographs, technical papers and edited volumes, the articles that make up this collection reflect the highly interdisciplinary nature of the field. An indispensable tool for both researchers and students in the area, this set makes accessible material that is otherwise both widely dispersed and difficult to obtain.

An extensive introduction at the beginning of the first volume draws together the three volumes and places each article in its broader context.

Table of Contents

Volume I: covers basic science in Japan, focusing in particular on university-industry cooperation

Volume II: devoted to technology, including technology transfer and engineering education

Volume III: focuses on Research and Development, with particular reference to the private sector.
