Yasuma Takata (1883-1971), nicknamed "the Japanese Marshall" by Martin Bronfenbrenner, dominated sociology and then economics in Japan over a long period. In sociology he was known through his articles published in German, whilst as an economist he remained rather unknown in the West, despite of his works along the line connecting Walras, Bohm-Bawerk, Wicksell and Keynes. His scope is wide enough to view Marx critically and accommodate Veblen, Pareto and Schumpeter. Accepting the orthodox economic theory as a first approximation, he tried to introduce institutional factors and power relationships as a second approximation. This volume is edited so as to represent his synthesis of economics and sociology.
