Same Bed, Different Dreams: America And Japan-Societies In Transition
Same Bed, Different Dreams: America And Japan-Societies In Transition
Edited by Alan D. Romberg and Tadashi Yamamoto
Council on Foreign Relations Press, 1990, 138 pp

These succinct essays based on extensive polling data trace changing American and Japanese attitudes toward work, minorities, women and political structures. The book succeeds in combating simplistic stereotypes and is, on balance, optimistic about the capacity of the two societies to sustain a constructive interdependence.
