Summary

"In this book a range of senior experts from inside Japan outline the many considerable changes currently taking place in a wide range of fields, including the economy, business and technology, politics, governance and international relations, and a wide range of social issues - the media, the position of women, nationalism and national consciousness, and religion. Overall, the book provides a corrective to misplaced Western and Eastern views; it aims to redirect stereotyped thinking about contemporary Japan inside as well as outside the country. In addition, it gives a summary overview of contemporary Japan, its current changes and problems - in short, the inside story of the second strongest national economy in the world, which is in the process of fundamental re-engineering and which will continue to have a huge impact globally in the future."--BOOK JACKET.
