I read the novel Rising Sun by Michael Crichton The story is about the grand opening of the Nakamoto Tower in Los Angeles the new American headquarters of a Japanese corporation On the night of the opening a young girl was killed on the forty-sixth floor one story above the floor of the party The Japanese liaison Lieutenant Peter James Smith was called to help the investigation begin as the Japanese businessmen tried to stall the police Though the story is about a homicide investigation the underlying theme is one of business deals both corrupt and proper Throughout the book the reader is taken though the way of Japanese business and quickly learns the differences between American companies and the Japanese even todayRising Sun shows examples of the Japanese persuasion in almost all aspects of typical American life The Japanese motto Business is war comes into affect throughout the story and is shown in their maneuvers to outwit the police The businessmen of Nakamoto Tower know that the murder was recorded on their surveillance cameras so they switch the tapes before the police have an opportunity to look at them themselves Then with technology years ahead of the Americans they alter the video to transform the identity of the murderer They care not for the truth to be found and they only work to hide the murder from the public The fear of a scandal that would topple the Nakamoto Corporation is enough to make the Japanese do whatever it takes to prevent the public from knowing of the murderThe book also discusses the loss of basic industries to Japan The decline of American business became apparent even to Congress who would move to stop the sale of business to the Japanese The American approach to business is entirely different than the Japanese approach American companies are compelled to show profits every few months while the Japanese dont care for the short-term business at all
