about this book

An analysis and explanation of the unstated rules of Japanese-American business relations. By drawing Western readers into the world in which they must function, the Halls simplify the process of adapting Western ways to a new environment.

“The authors believe that by better understanding Japanese culture, American business people will become more successful. By interviewing successful American and Japanese business people, the authors gathered information about cultural patterns such as use of space and time, information flow and communication processes, interpersonal relationships in the home and at work, business philosophy and management styles. Edward T. Hall, who analyzed American culture in The Silent Language, now has taken his analytical expertise and effectively applied it to the Japanese. Recommended for business practitioners and students.”—Grace Klinefelter, Ft. Lauderdale Coll. Lib., Fla. for Library Journal
