Overview

This title is the second volume of a comprehensive, four-volume survey which documents the miraculous growth of Japanese science and technology from postwar devastation to its attaining a leading global status. The team of more than fifty Japanese experts labored for ten years in assembling the unique materials into a monumental work of careful scholarship. The study won the prestigious Mainichi Publications Award in 1997.
