The records of the Board of Foreign Missions (BFM) of the Presbyterian church provide

valuable information on social conditions in developing Third World nations and on efforts to

spread the gospel during the nineteenth century. Among the missions' responsibilities was

the establishment of indigenous churches, educational facilities, hospitals, orphanages, and

seminaries.

During the 1920s and early 1930s, Japan progressed toward a democratic system of

government. However, parliamentary government was not rooted deeply enough to withstand

the economic and political pressures of the 1930s, during which military leaders became

increasingly influential. With their power unchecked, the militarist government led the

nation into a series of military conflicts that culminated in the almost total destruction of

the nation during World War II. Japan’s economy was completely disrupted, and throughout

the Occupation period, the country began the process of rebuilding its economy, industry,

political base, and society.
