Japanese Success? British Failure?

Comparisons in Business Performance since 1945

Edited by Etsuo Abé and Terry Gourvish

This comparative study combines the editorial perspectives of a Japanese and a British scholar to shed new light on the many components of the Japanese postwar economic miracle. Contributors to this collection consider key variables: the government-industry relationship, management structures, education and training, and finance. In fully exploring these essential ingredients of international competitiveness and corporate performance, this timely book interrogates the reigning simplistic notions of Japanese "success" and British "failure".
