While past studies of Japanese multinational companies in the West have typically assumed stereotyped differences in management systems and work cultures, "Japanese Bankers in the City of London" focuses on the real experiences of workers in Japanese transnational finance companies and, beyond this, offers fresh insights into the newly emerging multicultural work experiences worldwide. Through 100 transcribed interviews, Junko Sakai reveals the transnational working experience in the context of individuals' global movements between East and West and explores how the ideals and interactions of ethnicity and culture really affect their lives.

Industry Reviews

"Sakai's heavy emphasis on life story interviews provides convincing insights into the often grim realities of the personal circumstances involved. It would be no exaggeration to say that anyone thinking of working in a cross-cultural environment would be well advised to read this book on the "look-before-you-leap" principle. -Stephen Church in Japan Quarterly, July-September 2000, pg. 97."
