"How Japan can reinvent itself and why this is important for America and the world" Tuttle, 2015 Advance Reader's Copy, trade paperback format of what will be a hardcover in the regular edition, 288 pagesMailed anywhere in the world protected by sturdy corrugated cardboard. ISBN-13: 9784805313466Publication Year: 2015Author: Clyde PrestowitzLanguage: EnglishDetailed item infoSynopsisHow Japan Can Reinvent Itself and Why This Is Important for America and the World In 1979, the book "Japan as Number One: Lessons for America" by Harvard University professor Ezra Vogel caused a sensation in the United States by pointing out that Japan was surpassing America as world economic leader; the book remains to this day the all-time bestseller in Japan of non-fiction by a Western author. The book was timely: Japan's subsequent "bubble era" of the 1980s saw the country booming. But since the economic bubble burst at the start of the 1990s, Japan has been in decline. "Japan Restored" by Clyde Prestowitz, taking up Vogel's baton, is written as a vision of Japan in the year 2050, when the country's economic recovery has made it a world leader in every area of human endeavor. Prestowitz looks back to the year 2014 as such a low point for Japan that a special reform commission was set up that helped the country regain its former position as a leader in technology, in business, and geopolitically. Looking at education, innovation, the role of women, corporate organization, energy, infrastructure, domestic government, and international alliances Prestowitz draws up a fascinating and controversial blueprint for the future success of Japan. As the eyes of the world turn towards Japan in the run-up to the 2020 Olympics, "Japan Restored" is as timely as the 1979 Vogel book that inspired it.Product IdentifiersISBN-104805313463ISBN-139784805313466Key DetailsAuthorClyde PrestowitzNumber Of Pages288 pagesPublication Date2015-11-10LanguageEnglishPublisherTuttle PublishingDimensionsWidth6 In.Length9 In.Target AudienceGroupTradeReviews"Can Japan reverse decline? We all have a stake in this. Japan, after all, might be a model for other advanced post-industrial societies. There has probably not been a prescription for revival as radical, as pertinent, and as challenging as the one that Clyde Prestowitz lays down. Yet as I read it I found myself hoping that Japan will adopt his advice and continue to make its contribution to world civilization." - Bob Carr, former Foreign Minister of Australia"Clyde Prestowitz knows Japan well enough to speak about it with authority, likes Japan's people enough to care about their country's future, and is inventive and original-minded enough to have come up with a new way to think about an entire nation's possibilities. This book has the potential to recast discussion of Japan's way ahead. I hope it is widely read in Japan and around the world." - James Fallows, The Atlantic Monthly"Ever since Japan successfully challenged American industrial dominance in the 1980s, Clyde Prestowitz has been a leading voice in urging us to think differently about this remarkable and still misunderstood nation. His newest book builds on his rich career in trade and economic policy to probe more deeply into both Japan's persisting problems, and its still enormous potential to remain a creative force in the global economy." - Martin Fackler, New York Times Bureau Chief, Tokyo"Fascinating story of how a country could reinvent itself, in a world where the focus is on China and Japan is yesterdayAEs lunch. Clyde Prestowitz does a terrific job of creating a fictional blueprint of how Japan can become a world power and the impact it will have on our children and grandchildren. ItAEs hard to put down." - Daniel M. Slane, Commissioner, Congressional U.S. China Economic and Security Review Commission, Washington D.C."In Clyde Prestowitz's imagining Japan really is back. Its universities and technology are world class, its women fully emancipated, its culture open, its political power devolved, its energy-dependence a thing of the past and its citizenry bilingual in Japanese and English. Fantasy? Absolutely. But Prestowitz draws on decades of policy-making experience to argue that his vision of Japan's future is not only desirable but feasible." - David Pilling, Asia Editor of the Financial Times"Thirty years ago, the name Clyde Prestowitz stood for the top Japan basher who was warning the US to get its act together. But the true Prestowitz also had deep respect for Japanese values, was proficient in Japanese, and adopted a Japanese boy as his son. Now, in his latest book, he is advising the Japanese how to get its act together based on his own experience advising the US. It is a worthy read." - Richard C. Koo, Chief Economist, Nomura Research Institute
