About the Author

Marie Anchordoguy is Professor of Japanese Studies at The Heiry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington.


Her assiduous collection of data and skillful weaving it into a story is a formidable feat for a young scholar. She has dug deeper than other Westerners to understand how the Japanese succeeded in computers. -- Ezra Vogel, Harvard University
This book deserves the closest reading not just by Japan specialists but particularly by students of modern capitalism and those responsible for Japanese-American relations. Contrary to many economic theorists who contend that industrial policy never works, Marie Anchordoguy shows how the Japanese government deliberately nurtured several Japanese national competitors to IBM computers as part of a Japanese strategic policy. This is brilliant social science. -- Chalmers Johnson, University of California, San Diego
Computers, Inc. represents a triumph of primary research and analysis. It demonstrates conclusively the coordinated nature of public-private industrial policy in postwar Japan. -- Thomas McCraw, Harvard Business School
