Professor Metzler's book, Lever of Empire: The International Gold Standard and the Crisis of Liberalism in Prewar Japan examined the ways that Anglo-American pressures and homegrown ambitions led to policies that deliberately induced a series of economic depressions, culminating in the crisis of 1929-1931 and the reaction that followed. His present book project explores the successful stabilization of Japanese capitalism after World War II. These studies are part of a larger research program aimed at grasping the history of Japan in the "long duration" of centuries and in its wider East Asian and global contexts.
