The Japanese Challenge to U.S. Industry

By Jack Baranson
Lexington Books, 1981
188 pp. $19.95

Why are the Japanese so successful in competing with American business?

The consumer electronics industry of both countries provides a sharp focus for his excellent discussion. There is a good coda on the automobile industry (about which Mr. Baranson has written before).
