The Origin Of Modern Capitalism And Eastern Asia

£50.00

Product description

In the body of the work, seven general criteria, or key 'foci', taken as determinants of the emergence of modern industrial capitalism, are stated and examined in Chapters III to IX. Each criterion is analysed in a separate chapter, in respective sections dealing with its various aspects and significances; the author adduces a wealth of examples and illustrations, and traces (so to speak) the characteristic parameters involved, from the cases of the two great Far Eastern countries and societies--China and Japan. China and Japan are taken in juxtaposition, against this background, for a comparative study, the aim of which is to shed light on the great question, 'Why did Japan embark (with success) on the course of capitalism, as the path of industrialization, while China did not?'--and, in so doing, to clarify more generally our understanding of the nature of modern capitalism or industrialism, and the conditions for its emergence.


Slightly rubbed, otherwise in very good condition. Hardback book with no dust jacket.
