In a timely, even prophetic, portrait of Asia's rise and the magnitude of its challenge to the West, Fallows demolishes the myth that Japan is a capitalist country built on the Western model. He demonstrates instead how Japan's economic system treats business as an instrument of national interest while casting aside the traditional Western values of individual enterprise and human rights.

This is a stunning book, well-written and clearly argued and presented, that is essential reading for understanding the Japanese and their unique economic and political system. This is also a sobering book, for all nations, but probably and sadly mostly for Americans. I cannot believe that anyone who gives serious consideration to this book followed by thoughtful and ongoing observation will be left unchanged by it.Was this review helpful?
