Overview

JAPAN: Understanding & Dealing with the New Japanese Way of Doing Business by Boye Lafayette De Mente

This is a definitive description of the fundamental changes that have taken place in the way the Japanese do business since the meltdown that began in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with specific guidelines for understanding and dealing with the changes.
It covers the Western practices that have been adopted by Japanese companies in conjunction with the core traditional culture values and behavior that still distinguish the Japanese, and the measures the Japanese have taken to contend with global competition, particularly the rise of China and other Asian countries as economic powerhouses.
The hundred-plus culturally pregnant key Japanese words the book identifies and explains provide a comprehensive portrait of the Japanese mindset and behavior that is essential for foreign businesspeople, diplomats, academics and students.

About the Author

Boyé Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Mexico since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico City. He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA.

De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world!

His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations.He has also written extensively about his home state of Arizona and Mexico.
