Review quote

The quality of the project depended on a shared understanding of the concept which nontheless did not bind the contributors in a predetermined straightjacket. It was a fine balancing act, and in my view largely successful, with Richard Nelson as editor proving particularly adept on the tightrope. * The Economic Journal * `This book edited by Richard R. Nelson, is the culmination of a multi-author, multi-national project on national innovation systems and, as such is a superb achievement ... this book will become a classic study for anyone concerned with the world's scientific system. Japan is merely one of the countries under study.'
Anglo Japanese Journal `admirable study of national innovation systems ... the book is unusually coherent in its scope and analysis. It provides a wealth of information not just about technology policies, but about the institutional and cultural factors which influence each country's industrial performance ... This book is an important contribution towards more balanced discussion of high-tech issues and more rational government policies'
