This volume explores Japan's industrialization from the perspective of "indigenous development", focusing on what may be identified as "traditional" or "indigenous" industries. Available for the first time in English, this volume sheds new light on the role of "indigenous development" and our understanding of the dualistic character of Japan's economic development.
