Japan's minorities : the illusion of homogeneity by Michael Weiner( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite a master narrative of cultural and racial homogeneity, Japan is home to diverse populations. In the face of systematic exclusions and marginalization, minority groups have consistently challenged the subordinate identities imposed by the Japanese majority. Japan's Minorities addresses a broad range of issues associated with the six principal minority groups in Japan: Ainu, Burakumin, Chinese, Koreans, Nikkeijin, and Okinawans. The contributors to this volume show how an overarching discourse of homogeneity has been deployed to exclude the historical experience of minority groups in Japan. The chapters provide clear historical introductions to particular groups and place their experiences in the context of contemporary Japanese society

Interfirm networks in the Japanese electronics industry by Ralph Paprzycki( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interfirm Networks in the Japanese Electronics Industry analyses changes in production networks in the Japanese electronics industry. Japan's post-war success in the assembly industries (automobiles, electronics, etc.) is frequently attributed to innovative approaches to the organization of production: instead of relying on full scale vertical integration or arm's-length market transactions like their Western competitors, Japanese assemblers forged intricate networks of long-term interfirm business relationships that provided them with greater flexibility and quality of production. Traditionally, such networks have been characterized by hierarchical interfirm relationships resembling a pyramid." "Paprzyck's study shows how network arrangements have adapted in order to cope with profound changes in the competitive environment and how, as a result, many of the traditional elements of Japanese industrial organization described in the literature have begun to unravel."--BOOK JACKET
