As Japanese companies establish overseas production facilities at an ever more repid pace, it is increasingly important for people in the host countries to understand the preconceptions upon which the Japanese approach to industrial relations is based. This book traces the development of Japanese labour law and shows how labour law has been related to the prevailing social, economic and political circumstances.
