Going Global Culture, Gender, and Authority in the Japanese Subsidiary of an American Corporation by Ellen V. Fuller

Going Global Culture, Gender, and Authority in the Japanese Subsidiary of an American Corporation


Going Global Culture, Gender, and Authority in the Japanese Subsidiary of an American Corporation by Ellen V. Fuller

How culture and gender become weapons in the evaluation of both Japanese and female employees at an American company in Japan


Going Global is a thorough and interesting ethnographic study of a mainstream US organization in Japan, a context particularly well-suited for addressing the confluence of gender, culture, and authority issues that are its focus. The author's position as a bilingual insider with extensive access both to individuals and to organizational processes gives credibility to the descriptive accounts and confidence in the relevance of the findings. The specific organizational setting also strengthens Fuller's intended interdisciplinary appeal and highlights the rich insights and very real implications for those in similar organizations responsible to hire, develop, and assess managerial employees in foreign operations.

-John A. Volkmar, Otterbein College
