Was Japan’s economic miracle generated primarily by the Japanese state or by the nation’s dynamic private sector? In addressing this question, Kent Calder’s richly detailed study offers a distinctive reinterpretation of Japanese government-business relations. Calder challenges popular opinion to demonstrate how Japanese private enterprise has complemented the state in achieving the national purpose of industrial transformation.
