Based on original empirical data collected over a three-year period in Tokyo and the US, this ethnographic study of beginning elementary school teachers offers insight into the professional similarities and cultural differences that affect the teacher induction process in the two nations. Three chapters each are devoted to Japanese and American teachers, while the final chapter offers a synopsis of the findings and places them within a global educational context, including a comparative analysis of school systems. Paper edition (unseen) $18.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
