Overview

This is the third volume of a comprehensive, four-volume survey that documents the miraculous growth of Japanese science and technology from post-war devastation to its rise as a global leader. A team of more than fifty Japanese experts labored for ten years to assemble unique materials into this monumental work of careful scholarship. First published in Japanese in 1995, this study won the prestigious Mainichi Publications Award in 1995. This third volume, now in English, deals with the period of high economic growth from 1960 to 1969.
