During the 1920s the main focus was on two areas--the theory of capitalism expounded in the three volumes of Marxs Capital, and the particular characteristics of Japanese capitalism as it developed after the Meiji Restoration of 1868.

Rival schools of thought emerged and staged brilliant debates at a time when interest in Marxism in the United States was still almost nonexistent. Since World War II the economics faculties of major Japanese universities have taught both Marxist and neoclassical approaches, and many of the most important writings of U.S. and European Marxists have been translated and are widely used in Japan. There has not, however, been a comparable familiarity with the rich Japanese Marxist tradition in the West.

Professor Itohs book makes an important beginning in rectifying this lopsided situation. It opens with a long and highly informative essay on the development of Marxian economics in Japan, and contains a number of the authors important and original contributions to this stream of thought.
