One of the best things I've read on the subject is "The Reckoning" by
David Halberstam. He chooses two companies, Ford and Nissan, each the
embodiment of it's society and tells their stories side by side. At the end
we see the enterprising Koreans looking purposively over the shoulders of the
Japanese, whom they call "the lazy Asians".
