There is no doubt in my mind that this is the best book on the Japanese school, and expecially on the underlying concepts. As such it is one of the most important books on Japanese society. Peter Drucker Benjamin Duke knows both American and Japanese education intimately. His analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each is compelling. Everyone interested in Japan's economic performance over the past generation--and the next--needs to examine The Japanese School. Mike Mansfield, U.S. Ambassador to JapanDuke, Benjamin C. O. is the author of 'Japanese School' with ISBN 9780275920036 and ISBN 0275920038.
