about

This volume analyses the way in which the Japanese civil service has contributed to Japan's phenomenally successful economic growth and the lessons that experience may offer for other developing countries.

In its analysis, emphasises the degree of competitiveness within the Japanese bureaucracy, the extent to which political authority is wielded rather than formal power, and the way in which government policy has encouraged rather that inhibited marketforces.

It brings together many of the leading Japanese and American political scientists working on Japan ... there are lessons to be learned from the Japanese experience, positive and negative, and this is probably the best collection of essays available to tease themout.'Times Higher Education Supplement
