Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of contributors from North America and Europe, this volume presents 20 papers that provide advice on both research methodologies and Japanese society, often with reference to the authors' own research experiences, for prospective researchers in the social sciences. Major themes include the navigation of bureaucratic mazes in business and government, the penetration of "closed" networks, and the conduct of interviews and surveys.
