From the Publisher"I highly recommend this book to students of formal network analysis, complex organizations and markets, and Japan. It inspires the reader's confidence that the years the authors spent studying keiretsu enabled them to really know what they are talking about"
-Robert M. Marsh, Contemporary Sociology
"The structural analysis and knowledge of the context works very well in combination to inform the reader of Japanese business networks, and the evidence Lincoln and Gerlach present supports a stronger role for the individual firm and its network position and a weaker role for the keiretsu as a unitary actor in understanding Japanese business networks...The theory of organizational networks thus seems to travel well across contexts."
-Heinrich R. Greve, Administrative Science Quarterly
"Japan's Network Economy: Structure, Persistence, and Change is an ambitious, original, and meticulously researched analysis of the rise and fall and future of the great Japanese keiretsu...Supported by careful analysis, Lincoln and Gerlach get the story right and provide new insights into keiretsu behavior."
-Brian Uzzi, Northwestern University, American Journal of Sociology
