Why are Japanese companies the best in the world? What is the driving force behind their strength? This study critiques comprehensively the widely-shared theories concerning Japanese companies. While the book reconstructs theories of Japanese companies and the Japanese economy, it is merely a first, albeit necessary, step. The authors go beyond critiquing these theories by offering an alternative view of the Japanese economy and Japanese-style management.
