Description

The recognised success of the post-war Japanese economy has rested on the qualities of its manufacturing industries. This book explores the origins, rationale, and consequences of this transformation. Using theoretical insights and detailed evidence, it reviews the rise of the Japanese economy and the nature, causes, and changing objectives of vertical and horizontal integration; ownership, control, financing and bank-industry relations; and the major operational functions of production, human resources, distribution and marketing.

Table of Contents

Asia Pacigic Business Review - "an excellent introductory essay…Although these are generally brief essays, the focus on the origins of industrial development, and the use of specific case studies and illustrations means that there is a good deal here to interest the specialist reader. Given that the volume manages to cover many of the most noteworthy and debated factors behind Japanese economic development, it would clearly also make a valuable introductory text
