All nine companies examined here are classified as secondary industries. The book tries to emphasize that they are manufacturing companies, but they practice production with the Japanese corporate strategy of monozukuri. Monozukuri is part of a total management system that was established after and has been cultivated since World War II. Chapter  2 briefly surveys what has evolved in Japanese management thinking since the 1900s. In addition, the way Japanese global corporations cope with the global business environment is discussed.
