    Japan's Secret War? ‘Instant’ Scientific Manpower and Japan's World War II Atomic Bomb Project.Morris Fraser Low - 1990 - Annals of Science 47 (4):347-360.
    This paper questions claims that the Japanese may have succeeded in testing an atomic weapon shortly before the end of World War II. Historical and empirical evidence is examined which suggests that the lack of scientific expertise in nuclear physics hampered the development of an atomic bomb, the most qualified scientists generally being unwilling to become actively involved in the Japanese project. The paper looks at the wartime mobilization of Japanese scientists; outlines the Japanese atomic bomb project; examines claims that (...)

    Science Policy and Politics in Post-War Japan: The Establishment of the KEK High Energy Physics Laboratory.Satio Hayakawa & Morris F. Low - 1991 - Annals of Science 48 (3):207-229.
    This paper provides a detailed account of the prehistory of the KEK National Laboratory for High Energy Physics at Tsukuba in Japan. Attempts to establish Japan's first truly national laboratory marked the beginning of ‘big science’ in Japan. An examination of the debate and decision-making processes, which spanned over a decade, provide insight into the political aspects of policy making in the post-war period. History shows that even in Japan, self-interest has taken precedence over group interests in lobbying for research (...)

    Medical Representations of the Body in Japan: Gender, Class, and Discourse in the Eighteenth Century.Morris F. Low - 1996 - Annals of Science 53 (4):345-359.
    This paper examines the introduction of European anatomy to Japan via translated medical texts in the eighteenth century. It argues how detailed illustrations of the body found in the texts presented a new discourse by which to objectify and control the body, and new metaphors and analogies by which to view society. Inspection of bodily parts through dissection and the reading of anatomical texts marked a transition to Western forms of science, to ‘reliable’ knowledge which was certified by the social (...)
