Many have described the Japanese competitive success in information technology; very few have explained it. In this book Martin Fransman advances our understanding by developing the concept of the Japanese Innovation System--an arrangement consisting of competing and cooperating private companies, government policy-makers and researchers, and universities. It will be of interest to all teachers, students and policy makers interested in technological competition.
