In Part III, ideals, conflicts and strategy in East Asia during the 1920's and 1930's are examined. Part IV includes papers on China's economic policy, ethnic policy and the 'Confucian communism'. Including many papers from scholars based in Japan and China, this collection supplies fascinating insights into aspects of East Asian economic development which will interest scholars in a variety of related fields and provoke further research and debate.
