About this title


There is a substantial body of literature dealing with the Occupation of Japan; yet hardly any of it has addressed the significance of the enormous contributions in science and technology towards the realization of Japan's 'Economic Miracle' during this period; in particular, there has been nothing published to date dealing with the work of Scientific and Technical Division of McArthur's GHQ. The Scientific and Technical Division encouraged the creation of new national bodies concerned with Science and Technology; it persuaded the Japanese Government to create new and more efficient means of dealing with technological matters (including industrial standards, quality control, patents, and other intellectual property); it managed the sending abroad of scientists and engineers, government officials and industrialists to observe up-to-date practices in other countries. Those wishing to fully understand the processes by which Japan has developed it current industrial strength with such unprecedented speed will find here much that is new and significant.
