Manufacturing ideology : scientific management in twentieth-century Japan by William M Tsutsui( )

42 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tsutsui's study charts Taylorism's Japanese incarnation from the "efficiency movement" of the 1920s, through Depression-era "rationalization" and wartime mobilization, up to postwar "productivity" drives and quality-control campaigns. Taylorism became more than a management tool; its spread beyond the factory was a potent intellectual template in debates over economic growth, social policy, and political authority in modern Japan. Tsutsui's historical and comparative perspectives reveal the centrality of Japanese Taylorism to ongoing discussions of Japan's government-industry relations and the evolution of Fordist mass production. He compels us to rethink what implications Japanese-style management has for Western industries, as well as the future of Japan itself

In 2004, to mark the fiftieth anniversary of his first appearance on the screen, the original, uncut version of Godzilla was released in American theaters to the delight of sci-fi and B-movie fans everywhere. Ever since Godzilla (or Gojira, as he is known in Japan) crawled out of his radioactive birthplace to cut a swath of destruction through Tokyo, he has claimed a place alongside King Kong and others in the movie monster pantheon. He is the third most recognizable Japanese celebrity in the United States, and his fan base continues to grow as children today prove his enduring appeal. Historian Bill Tsutsui, a lifelong fan, takes a lighthearted look at the big, green, radioactive lizard, revealing how he was born and how he became a megastar. With humorous anecdotes, the book explores his lasting cultural impact on the world.--From publisher description
