Second to None: American Companies in Japan

By Robert C. Christopher
Crown, 1986
256 pp. $16.95

Reviewers cringe when yet another book on Japanese-American relations appears, especially one about business. But this book is an exception. Focusing on the success stories of American companies in Japan, it is full of interesting firsthand material (although the same people appear rather often). Some of its best sections discuss the personal-and personnel-relations of American managers with their Japanese colleagues. On broader issues we hear only one side of the story, but the criticisms of the prevalent American disposition to blame everything on the Japanese are well put.
