Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2000 John Whitney Hall Book Prize, Northeast Asia Council of the Association for Asian Studies

"William Tsutsui has produced a brilliant study of the ideology of Japanese industrial management. . . . The clear analysis and informative, and at times witty, presentation make the subject accessible to anyone who wants to understand the process of the adoption and diffusion of Taylorism, or Scientific Management, in twentieth-century Japan."--Monumenta Nipponica

"This extremely interesting and important study of the dissemination and development of Taylorism in Japan begins with its introduction in 1911 and concludes with a discussion of the quality control movement of the 1960s and 1970s. . . . The book is well written, well researched, and well argued. It draws on numerous original Japanese sources. . . . Recommended."--Choice
