This volume presents a grab bag of papers addressing a range of issues concerning Japan. The nine chapters discuss interpersonal relationships and mental health among Japanese college students, accountability and assessment in higher education, ethical views of Japanese managers, evidence from Japan regarding earnings management to meet earnings benchmarks, contemporary monetary policy and financial system issues, international intra-firm transfer of management technology by Japanese multinational corporations, and Sino-Japanese relations. The editor's credentials are not given and the selection rationale is not explained beyond the loose unifying theme of Japanese issues.
