Originally published in 1983, this book analyses the crisis that began in Japan with the 'oil shock' of 1973. Assembling a large body of statistical data, derived from government sources and a survey of over fifty companies, the book is rich in empirical information, much of which had not been published in English before. The living and working conditions, age and sex composition, relative size and potential strength, ideologies and organisation of all the main social classes are examined. Through his often highly critical use of analytical studies by Japanese Marxists, the author reveals a strong tradition of sophisticated theoretical Marxism to rival even that of the French and yet largely unknown to Western scholars. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Japanese culture, economics, social science and political science.
