Review of Hirokazu Hirai, Nihon Shokuminchi Zaiseishi Kenkyū (Study on the History of Finance of Japanese Colonial Governments)

Mineruva Shobō, Kyoto, 1997
Part of the Monograph Series of the Socio-Economic History Society, Japan book series (MSSEHSJ)


The field of Japanese colonial economic history has produced a significant body of research, but work on fiscal history remains sparse for some reason, a discrepancy that seems all the more disproportionate given the abundance of research on monetary history. Fiscal administration is the point of intersection for politics and economics. We need studies of this area for our grasp of the history of the Japanese colonial empire to be truly comprehensive.
