Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book brings together the best writing on Japanese business in a comprehensive reader, illustrating the impact of Japanese culture and lifeways on all facets of business behavior. The authors examine not only Japanese management, but also production, accounting, marketing, distribution, law, and interpersonal relationships. Essays include analyses by businessmen, management scholars, anthropologists, and lawyers, all in one accessible volume for those concerned with Japanese business performance, the international business climate, and cooperative ventures between cultures and corporations.

"Understanding Japan is obviously important, and the cultural approach, while not the only one, is essential. In my own experience of briefing American businesspersons assigned to Asia I have found a great deficiency in basic knowledge that a book such as this would go far to correct.

"This is an excellent volume on Japanese business, representing a variety of points of view within the broad context of a cultural approach. There is variety, balance, and enough explanation to guide and motivate the reader. The variety of disciplines presented--anthropology, sociology, management, economics--is also useful." -- Steven I. Levine, Duke University
