Synopsis

This study examines how cooperation between private & public enterprises in Japan-known as a "latecomer" to industrial development-contributed to a highly integrated & responsive technological base. Drawing on case studies from the computer & telecommunications industry, Donna Doane shows how three phenomena enabled Japanese enterprises to "catch up" during the 1960s & 1980s: multi-structured industry, family-based industrial networks, & a distinct government-industry relationship. Lessons for other industrial, & especially developing, countries are drawn.
