This book presents diverse perspectives on how work and employment are developing in a rapidly changing, contemporary Japan. Using macro- and micro-level data, the authors show both how the Japanese employment system is evolving as well as how the meanings that individual Japanese attach to their work and employment are developing. It is useful to anyone with an interest in work and employment in Japan, from scholars and specialists in HRM and management, to economists, sociologists and anthropologists.
