Attempting a coherent portrait of the heart of Japan's economic and political decision making, this book presents the top 2000 men occupying the core positions in Japan's ruling party, the central ministries, and in big business and its organizations. Elite career patterns, social origins, upbringing, university education, cognitive orientations and ways of life are reviewed, as are the interactions in the exclusive world of Japan's increasingly hereditary and bureaucratic class of power holders in conservative politics and big business. Other books by Rothacher include "Economic Diplomacy Between the European Community and Japan" and "Japan's Agro-Food Sector: The Politics and Economics of Excess Protection".
