Japanese firms have come under close examination by their international counterparts, who seek insight into the sources of Japanese accomplishments. The Japanese Firm reveals the complex network of institutions and practices surrounding the Japanese firm to explain the successes of the Japanese
economy. A team of internationally renowned scholars uses theoretical and empirical work, and combines contributions from the fields of institutional economics, organizational theory, economic history, and sociology to elucidate the distinctive social and economic context of Japanese firms. Through
an analysis of the internal structure of firms, the interdependency of firms and their suppliers, and the effects of relative income and power equality, Aoki and Dore recognize the diversity of experience within Japan and address the transferability or adaptability of the Japanese experience to the
Nordic or Anglo-American context.
