520    The remarkable success of Japanese industry has frequently
       been attributed to the inter-corporate alliances and 
       networks that exist in the Japanese economic system. Many 
       commentators argue that is has been these networks that 
       have been key to both the rapid growth and success of 
       Japanese industry. Business Networks in Japan explores the
       creation of supplier-customer networks through case 
       studies of two of Japan's largest companies: the Toshiba 
       Corporation and the Nippon Steel Corporation. Jens Laage-
       Hellman examines the advantages that have been gained from
       cooperation with suppliers and customers in industrial 
       markets and how they have been utilized to develop and 
       commercialize new products. Importantly, the study reveals
       the differences and similarities in the networking and 
       interacting behaviour of Japanese and Western companies, 
       highlighting the importance of the Japanese industrial 
       culture in fully realising the benefits of networks
