hybrid of those versions.

Es handelt sich bei der industriellen Revolution in Japan um ein Ereignis mit wirtschaftsgeschichtlicher Akzentuierung. Aufgrund ihrer Komplexität kann hierbei die Sozialgeschichte Japans nicht in den Fokus genommen werden. Dem europäischen Leser wird es bereits bei einigen wirtschaftspolitischen Entscheidungen der japanischen Machthaber schwer fallen, diese nachzuvollziehen.
Eine Grundlage für diese Arbeit bilden zum einen das Überblickswerk von Christoph Buchheim und eine Monographie von Annelotte Piper , welches sich mit dem kompletten Entwicklungsprozess der Industrialisierung Japans beschäftigt. Des Weiteren ist ein Werk von Volker Hentschel zu nennen, das sich intensiv mit den Voraussetzungen und Grundlagen der industriellen Revolution in Japan befasst. Außerdem ist der Aufsatzsammelband, der von W. J. Macpherson herausgegeben wurde, anzuführen. Dieser widmet sich einer Vielzahl von Facetten, welche die japanische industrielle Revolution bedingten.
