"By most expectations Japan and the Japanese should be facing poverty and anarchy. Yet they don’t. Japan works. Probing how and why it works has become a subject of great fascination in the U.S. for obvious reasons. Now comes [this] first-rate study that provides a particularly useful perspective on that subject….Mr. Clark has written an excellent analysis [of the Japanese company] that should stand the tests of time and competition to become a definitive work in the genre."—Mike Tharp, The wall Street Journal
"Rodney Clark’s The Japanese Company illustrates how this interesting economic organism works, and in the process separates a number of myths from reality….Detailed and analytical,…[his] account of the differences between Japanese and American companies bears careful reading."—Frank B. Gibney, The New York Times Book Review
"Highly recommended for general readers as well as specialists."—Library Journal
"A splendid book indeed."—Asia
