    Abstract

    Each of the editors of this book took a different route to the collaboration that has culminated in this volume. In Japan, the mission of Carl Shoup has played an important role in narratives of the nation’s post–World War II development, and, consequently, Eisaku Ide and Yasunori Fukagai learned about the mission very early on in their educations, during secondary school. In graduate school at the University of Tokyo, they deepened their interests as Fukagai specialized in the history of economic thought and Ide in the fiscal and financial history of Japan during the twentieth century. W. Elliot Brownlee did not encounter the mission until graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, when he was enrolled in a seminar, “Philosophers and Philosophies of Taxation,” conducted by economist Harold Groves, a contemporary of Shoup's. Later, in 1979, at the annual meeting of the National Tax Association, Brownlee had the privilege of a long conversation with Carl Shoup during the plenary lunch. In 2002, while visiting the University of Tokyo, Brownlee launched a study of the Shoup mission as a significant episode in American efforts to export tax and economic ideas. During 2007 and 2008, our research careers converged. Ide, who was teaching in the Economics Faculty at Yokohama National University (YNU), introduced Brownlee, who had returned to the University of Tokyo as a Visiting Professor, to the collection of Carl Shoup’s papers and books in the YNU Library. It turned out that after Shoup’s death in 2000, his family and YNU had arranged for the transfer of his books and papers from his barn in rural New Hampshire. The archive was vast, containing more than 700 boxes, and very few scholars had consulted it.
