Monographien aus dem Deutschen Institut für Japanstudien  (Bd. 11)

This volume deals with interdisciplinary research on the cultural and ideological causes for - and reasons behind - economic growth in East and Southeastern Asia, especially in Japan. The contributions discuss the assumption that - similar to European industrialization and modernization where, according to Max Weber, the inner-worldly ethos of Protestantism was the decisive factor - there must habe been a comparable spiritual basis underlying the successful modernisation of Japan and some other countries in East and Southeastern Asia.
