Written by one of Japan's leading psychiatrists, this is a penetrating exploration of the Japanese character. It offers an analysis of the Japanese group ethic and of the origins of Japanese anti-individualism. A leading psychiatrist offers not only the most satisfying explanation of Japanese behaviour yet written, but a key to new understanding of all basic human needs.
