A Social History of Science and Technology in Contemporary Japan
Volume 3, 1960-1969
edited by Shigeru Nakayama, Kanagawa University; Kunio Goto, St Andrews University & Hitoshi Yoshioka, Kyushu University

This is the third volume of a comprehensive, four-volume survey that documents the miraculous growth of Japanese science and technology from post-war devastation to its rise as a global leader. 

A team of more than fifty Japanese experts have laboured for ten years to assemble unique materials into this monumental work of careful scholarship. This third volume in the series deals with the period of high economic growth from 1960 to 1969.
