Written by fifteen leading academics from the Japan Society for International Development (JASID), this book undertakes a review of Japan's economic development over the previous 150 years, and seeks to clarify Japanese priorities in domestic and foreign policy for the coming decades.

Contributors from a variety of disciplines evaluate Japan's own experience in achieving economic development, focusing on topical issues such as the role of the environment, community governance and disaster management. Globalization and economic growth has also brought about a sea-change in Japan's development cooperation policy; the new orientation of this policy is explored in full.

This book will be a fruitful resource for policymakers in developing nations as well as academics with an interest in the modernization of non-Western societies.
