“Chalmers Johnson long has been America’s most penetrating, provocative analyst of Japan’s political economy. . . . The scholarship is superb, and the analysis persuasive and enlightening. . . . An accessible, handy compilation of insights that undergird revisionism [the view that Japan’s politico-economic system differs far more from the Western model than most Westerners realize]. . . . Juicy insights, such as Johnson’s explanation of structural corruption as it’s revealed by the career of the late Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, provide more than enough meat to chew on and relish.” Robert Neff, Business Week The godfather of Japanese revisionism, author of MITI and the Japanese Miracle and president of the Japan Policy Research Institute explains howand whyJapan has become a world power in the past 25 years. Johnson lucidly explains here how the Japanese economy will thrive as it moves from a producer-dominated economy to a consumer-oriented headquarters for all of East Asia.
