' ... the book contains an important message for those who believe that the West can borrow from Japan's experience with collaboration.' Guy de Jonquieres, Financial Times 'The narrative aspect can hardly be faulted ... the author presents a painstaking but fascinating account of how MITI managed to persuade the reluctant management of, say, Fujitsu or Hitachi to pool some of their research efforts.' Andrea Boltho, Times Higher Educational Supplement ' ... extremely well-researched ... its greatest strength is that it tries to explain as well as describe ... as an exercise in comparative industrial organisation [it] is something of a tour de force.'
