Contributors to this volume include some of the world's most brilliant thinkers from fields as diverse as business, politics, academia, science and technology, journalism and art and design. Authors have been selected for their promience, but also for their knowledge of Japan and distinctiveness of their point of view. Many essays seek to identify, assess and prioritize Japan's major challenges for the next decade, while also suggesting solutions. But the collection also includes more literary, reflective essays, intended to provoke discussion and new ideas. This is a rare blend of truly global commentary and insight unlike anything ever published about Japan.
