From the Publisher"A simple suggestion: anyone who cares to comment on Japan's commitment to deregulation must first read this book. As Steven Vogel explains, . . . deregulation comes in many guises."—Japan Times
"There is growing acceptance of the claim that international market forces have been compelling reluctant governments to deregulate, liberalize, and privatize ever more segments of their domestic economies. . . . Steven Vogel's refreshing book presents a compelling political challenge to such oversimplifications."—Comparative Political Studies
"This is undoubtedly the finest comparative study we have of the regulatory reform movement that has spread across the advanced industrial countries over the last decade or so."—Political Studies
"This masterly work . . . elevates the reader to a higher stage where he/she can start asking cutting-edge questions about comparative political economy. Rarely does a book leave the reviewer grateful for the opportunity to have looked into an issue so carefully. I welcome this exception."—Hiwatari Nobuhiro, University of Tokyo, Social Science Japan Journal. 1999.
"The best published account so far of the reforms of the stock markets in the United Kingdom."—Sir Nicholas Goodison, Deputy Chairman, Lloyds TSB Group, plc.
"Vogel writes with extraordinary clarity about a very complex subject. His discussion of deregulation in Japan not only gives the reader a clear understanding of the distinct issues of market liberalization and regulatory reform as they have been pursued in Japan, but also offers a nuanced analysis of the relationship between state and market in contemporary Japan."—Gerald L. Curtis, Columbia University
