"...a useful addition to all banking and finance collections." Choice "This book offers a useful overview of Japan's banking institutions as they evolved...it provides material not readily accessible in other English-language literature. The author also does a good job of setting the development of Japanese banking into the larger context of Japan's modern history. The result is a book...too thoughtful to dismiss as superfiical. It would be a mistake, however, to understate the value of the book. This book treats one aspect of the problem from a perspective that is thoughtful, thought-provoking, and not mired in the theoretical assumptions that shape much Western literature on the subject. A careful reader will find much in it about which to think." Elizabeth P. Tsunoda "This book offers a useful overview of Japan's banking institutions as they evolved... Drawn largely from Japanese sources, it provides material not readily accessible in other English-language literature. The author also does a good job of setting the development of Japanese into the larger context of Japan's modern history. A careful reader will find much in it about which to think." Elizabeth P.
