From Publishers Weekly:

Management consultants Fernandez and Barr view heterogeneity as an American business advantage. Success in the global marketplace, they argue, hinges on a country's ability to utilize "all of its people regardless of their diversity" in the work force. The authors weave a brilliant analysis of race, gender, discrimination, immigration and religion in the U.S., Japan and the Common Market, but some conclusions will be controversial: although Americans "have not resolved all of the gender, racial, ethnic, and religious problems . . . we have the experience . . . to accommodate, if not accept, differences," while Japan and European countries "take pride in and are staunchly attempting to protect their homogeneity." Fernandez and Barr's discussion of Japan's aging population, history of racism, wretched treatment of women, strained post-1945 relations with Asian nations and closed markets is revealing, as is material on Germany's nascent neo-Nazi movements. This is among the best business books of the year.
