Description - Japanese Science by Samuel Coleman

Japan's performance in the field of scientific research has been less than might be expected. There has been a curious dichotomy between what has gone on in the laboratory and the country's outstanding technical sophistication and economic success. However, this may be about to change. This new ethnograpic study of Japan's scientists looks firsthand at the career structures and organizational issues that have hampered their advancement. It provides an analysis of the problem of career mobility in science, the status quo in university and government laboratories, relations between scientists and lay administrators and the problems encountered by women scientists. Japanese Science contests the view that Japan's relatively poor scientific record has been the product of cultural factors and instead demonstrates the crucial importance of moribund policy decisions in holding back dynamic and ambitious scientists.
