The author's banking background in Japan, and some good interviews, lend interest to this comprehensive tour of what is now rather familiar territory, comparing the business and government practices and attitudes of the Japanese with those of Americans. He concludes that the United States needs a trade and industrial strategy based on economic nationalism, because "the game of international commercial competition may well be a zero-sum game."
