In the tradition of French scholarship—which rejects a narrowly focused approach—the book encompasses all aspects of the transformation that raised Japan from the ashes of defeat after World War II to the status of an economic model. Bouissou closely relates economic growth to political and social upheaval, tracing changes in the Japanese value system, culture, and way of life. His provocative analysis, with its emphasis on social dislocation rather than the much discussed Japanese predilection for social harmony, is a major contribution to any exploration of Japan's position in the current global environment.
