Modern Japan and its Problems (Hardcover): G.C. Allen Modern Japan and its Problems (Hardcover)
G.C. Allen
R3,212 Discovery Miles 32 120 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The author, who was for several years a lecturer in a Japanese Government College, has tried to interpret the civilization and national character of Japan in the light of his experience and of his studies in that country. He describes the novel problems and phenomena which have been created by the attempt of the Japanese to graft the political, economic and educational institutions of the West on to their Oriental social organization. He deals with the influence of the West on the different phases of the national life, and with the attitude of the Japanese to Europe and America. Particular attention is given to industrial and financial development and to contemporary economic problems. There are chapters on the political system, on the social organization, and on the educational system; and there is a special study of the population problem.

G.C. Allen
R3,195 Discovery Miles 31 950 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Written after the outbreak of war between Japan and China but putting aside British sentiments of suspicion, dislike and a sense of competition, G C Allen bases his observations of Japanese social, political and economic life on his first-hand experience of living and working in the country for a number of years. He argues that the economic expansion of Japan was regarded as a greater threat to Britain because of Japan's political aims and aggressive territorial expansion, but he is at pains to explain the Japanese domestic circumstances which gave rise to this situation. He also argues that the expansion of the British Empire has some parallels with Japanese expansion, without condoning Japanese methods. Overall the author emphasizes the extent to which judgments about the qualities of the Japanese people have been influenced by the political views of writers in Western countries.

JAPAN the Hungry Guest by G. C. ALLEN B runner Professor of Economic Science University of Liverpool You said you must Because your horse - was tired I said I must go Because my silkworms were hungry ARTHUR WALEY trans. NEW YORK E. P. DUTTON CO., INC. 1938 FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1938 BENKE1 BRIDGE, TOKYO TO MY WIFE PREFACE NO one who has had the good fortune to live in Japan has ever failed to be profoundly influenced by his experience, for the country exercises a fascination, which cannot be resisted, over the minds of all who come to her, even of those who are her most bitter critics. From the time of my first arrival in Japan about sixteen years ago the country has held for me an interest which has deepened with the years, and I have felt for her people an affection which has never cooled. I returned to England in 1925, after holding an appointment, for three years in a Government College at Nagoya, and shortly afterwards my general impressions and the results of my studies of economic conditions were embodied in a book en titled Modern Japan and Its Problems. In 1936 1 paid a second visit to Japan, at the request of the Bureau of International Research of Harvard University and Radcliffe College, mainly for the purpose of collecting data for the study of the development and organization of Japanese industry. The results of these researches are published in America. Apart from my detailed investigations into industrial conditions, during the months I spent in Japan I had an opportunity of comparing many aspects of Japanese life in 1936 with those I remembered from my former residence in the country. I renewed old friendships and made new ones, and I had discussions on many political andsocial questions that interested me. The informa tion provided in this way, and the impressions which I gained, were of utmost help to me in my efforts to trace the tendencies in Japans . social, political, and economic life with which this book deals. The book has been written since the outbreak of the war with China, and Japans actions during this time have been the object of widespread condemnation. An author cannot hope to escape completely from the effects of this heated atmosphere, especially in these days of propaganda. But I have tried to write objectively and without prejudice, and I hope that in recording the io JAPAN THE HUNGRY GUEST facts I have not been influenced either by my affection for Japanese people or by my personal views about Japanese fore policy. Here and there I have not hesitated to evaluate tenden and events, nor to express my own judgments. But I hope th have left the reader in no doubt about what are inductions from observed facts and what are interpretations or criticisms depenc upon my own opinions and outlook. Many Japanese friends and acquaintances have contribt information and have admitted me to intimacy with much tha peculiar to Japanese life. I can record my indebtedness to c one of them to my late friend, Mr. Takeshi Matsumura. . several of the photographs I should like to thank Mr. A. Morik and Mr. J. Bewsher. My wife has given me invaluable help criticism at every stage in the writing of this book. G. C. ALL March 1938 CONTENTS CHAPTER PAGE PREFACE 9 I. INTRODUCTION 15 II. NIPPON SEISHIN 21 III.

This book, first published in 1929, analyses the changes to Birmingham and the Black Country in the nineteenth century. The area underwent quite a transformation: many of the older trades were decaying, while at the same time a number of new manufactures were making a remarkable rapid advance. As a result of this, the industrial structure of the area in the early twentieth century was made up of very different constituents from those of which is was composed sixty years previously. This is an invaluable study of a remarkable industrial transformation that was carried out in a very short space of time.
