Copertina anteriore
HarperCollins, 1997 - 390 pagine
We envy their efficiency, but who are the sararimen, the corporation warriors who toil away with selfless dedication in their company cubicles? What do the children who spend every evening in "cram schools" really think and feel about their future? An epic and insightful look at the Japanese psyche and soul, revealing a people who now seek to change the very thing that we believe sets them apart: the struggle between individual rights and one's duty towards society.
