Land Reform in Japan

By R. P. Dore
Oxford University Press (for the Royal Institute of International Affairs), 1959
510 pp. $8.80

This book, the product both of library research and extensive field work in the villages, is a most important contribution to the study of the agrarian question in Japan. After setting forth the basic problems of Japanese agriculture and the changes wrought by the postwar reforms the author assesses the economic, social and political effects of these measures. On the whole the picture is a decidedly favorable and optimistic one.
