Abstract Alternative
This paper deals with the well-known controversy in the middle of this century (ca.1930~1975) on the subject of the developmental phase of the industry in the late Tokugawa Period. The point at issue in dispute was whether the industry of the pre-Meiji era had so far advanced as to the "Manufacture Stage" that precedes the "Modern Factory Stage" set in the theories of Marx and Lenin. In the ride of regression of Marxism the dispute seems to be now brought to a close. However, as the issue is closely related to the modernization in general, the discussion is sure to go on further in the future. The paper first surveys industry regions of pre-Meiji Japan, second introduces briefly important opinions of the dispute, then precisely examines the stage theories of Marx and Lenin, trying to find a correct answer that accords with the two. That it poses a question to the negative evaluation of the putting-out system and tries to find its proper place in the development of the production forms of modern capitalism and would thus get a better solution of the problem. The paper finally mentions the current active discussions about proto-industry and about the analysis of the international trade among Asian countries at the end of the 19t century and shows their relations to the dispute above.
