Japan and the Internet Revolution presents an image of a dynamic,
innovative country, seeking to adapt the most important technology
of this generation - the Internet - to the realities of Japanese
life. The book examines the slow and sporadic development of the
Internet in Japan and chronicles the dramatic emergence of the
i-mode (DoCoMo) mobile Internet. The study also considers the
response of the Government of Japan to the opportunities and
challenges of the Internet, and examines the development of
e-commerce and national patterns of Internet use. The authors
counter the image of Japan as a debt-ridden nation, lacking in
innovative spirit and technological creativity and presents a
portrait of a country that has developed a strong nation-centred
Internet presence, with technology superbly suited to local
conditions and with a government struggling to catch up to the
innovations introduced by numerous Japanese companies. On a broader
scale, the book argues that national values, assumptions,
traditions and institutions may be a critical factor in determining
which countries are most likely to capitalize on the economic,
social and political potential of the Internet
