Abstract

This book documents the conventional wisdom that Japanese workers displayed significantly more commitment to their organizations than did American workers. But as the authors point out in their new prologue, the world is very different from when this survey of U.S. and Japanese manufacturing firms first appeared; the latter are now moving closer to the American "market individualist" model.
