In this analysis of Japan's policy-making, David Williams places his argument within the debates about Japanese political economy in the United States and Britain, debates previously polarised between `market' and `ministry' views. He presents Japanese-style nationalist development as a serious challenge to Western values and theory.


`…a lively, provocative, erudite and well-written book. As befits a practising journalist, Williams demonstrates both an attractive turn of phrase and the nimble use of data and argument.' - Political Studies

`The specialist will… find many thought provoking comments in this book which is clearly based on an in depth study of Japanses political institutions and attitudes.' - - Sir Hugh Cortazzi, Proceedings of the Japan Society
