This work merges inquiry and interpretation in a study of the evolution and emergence of Japan's leading industrial firms in the twentieth century. It combines historical and organizational analyses with development and strategy studies. This synthesis offers a model of institutional development under conditions of late economic development and private initiative that falls somewhere between a capitalist development state and a free market economy. Business rather than industrial policy is emphasized, revealing robust institutions and a dynamic to activate and encourage interaction among them.

Review:


"Embodies a historical approach to the evolving competitive strategies and cooperative structures in Japanese industry. He emphasizes the existence of local factories and core activities, interfirm networks, and economies of scope even more than economies of scale....Based to a large extent on Japanese-language sources."--Choice


"This is the best book on Japanese industrial structure in any language."--Chalmers Johnson


"Will set the stage for the discussion of the Japanese business system and of the structures and strategies of its enterprises for many years to come."--Alfred Chandler, Harvard University
