Kim (anthropology, U. of Tennessee-Martin) examines the cultures in three Japanese industrial plants to investigate why Japanese industries are coming to the southern US, to what extent they replicate the industrial relations used in Japan, and the reactions of Americans toward the Japanese expatriates. He challenges many American assumptions about how much and how little the Japanese know. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
