産業という言説／Sangyo to iu gensetsuKatsudō shashin keizairon/Kokusan shōrei to eiga jigyō (2004)
An introduction to and commentary on two books on the film industry in Japan reprinted in the Nihon eigaron gensetsu taikei series: Ishimaki Yoshio's Katsudō shashin keizairon (1923), and Negishi Koichi's Kokusan shōrei to eiga jigyō (1926). While both books discuss the film industry in different ways and in detail, I argue that both also believe that a discourse on the film industry is essential to the development of a healthy film world, in that both argue that industrial structure is a condition for the production of good cinema.
