The Work of Ronald P. Dore and Pacific Affairs
This introductory essay discusses Ronald Dore's academic career and contributions. As an "accidental Japanologist," Dore made enormous contributions to the understanding of Japanese society. As a sociologist, he rigorously employed a sociological approach to the study of comparative political economy with profound moral-philosophical reflections. By doing so, he helped to correct our misunderstanding of education, development, and internationalization—topics of extensive discussion in the following essays. Among his numerous contributions to Pacific Affairs between 1952 and 2008, Dore wrote three essays covering these topics during the 1970s. Amazingly, his ideas as presented in these essays still resonate today.
