This is the first volume of a comprehensive, six-volume survey documenting the miraculous growth of Japanese science and technology from postwar devastation to leading global status. Vol. 1 deals with the Occupation period 1945-52. A team of over 50 Japanese experts labored for ten years to assemble the unique materials into a monumental work of careful scholarship. The study won the prestigious Mainichi Publications Award in 1995.
