About this item
The main focus of this monograph is the dynamic relationships between Japan and her colonies during the years _____–1945, and the economic development of each colony. At present, East Asia is a major economic center of the world. It is necessary to examine not only both sides of the “exploitation or development under colonization” paradigm but also the prewar factors that spurred East Asian economic growth in the postwar decades. A noteworthy characteristic of the Japanese empire was the close economic and geographic relations between Japan and her colonies. Economic integration within the empire strengthened considerably in the interwar years, and remained high even during the war as compared to European countries and their colonies. What was the irreversible change in each colonial economy by means of forced incorporation into the Japanese empire? What was the impact on economic subjects such as merchants, manufacturers, managers, and workers through the colonial regime? This book provides readers with broad perspectives that are indispensable given that the factors discussed herein are the historical origins of current issues.
