The Industrialization of Japan and Manchukuo, 1930-1940

By E. B. Schumpeter

Macmillan, 1940, 944 pp.

A voluminous study concerning the increasingly extensive and helpful rôle played by Manchukuo in the expansion of Japanese industry. The authors' picture of Japan's prosperity and economic invulnerability is probably too rosy, due to their excessive respect for not always reliable Japanese statistics.
