Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Drawing on his work with two research institutes in Japan, Babb examines the relationship between business and politics in that country. He does review past patterns of interaction, but focuses primarily on the current state of business involvement in politics and the degree to which things have and have not changed. He argues that the typical business reaction to government as meddling and tampering with the economy is unhealthy, and does not acknowledge the degree to which business is intertwined with government.
