Summary
"No issue may be more crucial to America's standing in the world than its widening competition with Japan and Germany, a struggle rooted in the three nations' potentially irreconcilable yet deeply held cultural and political traditions. In a powerful analysis drawn from two decades of high-level experience in both government and business, Jeffrey E. Garten shows that the greatest threat to America's national security may well emerge from our reluctance to recognize how the global rules of the game have changed and our failure to adopt a new mind-set not only toward Japan and Germany but toward ourselves as well."--BOOK JACKET
