Reviews


"[Her] thesis is a strong one, and Renshaw supports her view not ony with statistics and other publicly available data but also with the stories of the interviewees and rich metaphors drawn from Japanese culture itself....A welcome addition to our knowledge of women in business in Japan, a wide-ranging exploration of the multifaceted context in which these women strive to succeed, and a book rich in information and imagery."--Academy of Management Review
