E-Books on Business Culture, Sexual Customs & Travel in America & Asia

The first book to reveal and explain the kata (kah-tah), or "cultural molds," that create and control the attitudes and behavior of the Japanese.

Previous books on Japan have described in detail how the Japanese behave. The Kata Factor is the first book to explain why the Japanese think and behave the way they do.
Veteran Japanologist Boye Lafayette De Mente reveals for the first time the existence of a comprehensive set of kata (kah-tah) or "cultural molds," that have traditionally created and controlled the character and actions of the Japanese.
The kata are the Rosetta stone of Japan's enigmatic culture--the keys that unlock the mystery and mystique surrounding the Japanese way of doing business and conduct all of their personal and professional affairs.
When used in their Japanese context, the kata include more than just the mechanical process of doing things. They also incorporates the physical and spiritual laws of the cosmos...
They refer to the way things are supposed to be done, both the form and the order, as a means of expressing and maintaining harmony in society and the universe.

Professional Reviews

Telling it like it is...!
"I have been acting as a 'bridge' between Japanese and foreign businessmen for nearly forty years. This book says what I have been trying to say all those years"--Tokuo (Paul) Maruoka, Director, Price Waterhouse, Tokyo, Japan.

Explaining the frustrations...!
"The Kata Factor helped me understand the frustrating experiences I've had with the Japanese as an American entrepreneur in Japan since 1980. It is a valuable guide to the Japanese kangae kata (way of thinking) and yari kata (way of doing things) for anyone dealing with Japan"--Griffith Frost, President, Frost Intl Group, Tokyo, Japan.

The one book to read...!
"If I could recommend only one book on Japan that foreign businessmen, politicians and government leaders should read it would be The Kata Factor"--Wm. K. Nichoson, President, Asia Dynamics, Tokyo, Japan.
