The Establishment of Economic Society and the Edo Period

  • Akira Hayami
Part of the Studies in Economic History book series (SEH)

In the advanced regions in Kinai and its surrounding areas, the fact that the economic society that formed took precedence, and seizing control of such areas was by no means the same as seizing control of other areas which had not experienced the change toward economic society yet.
