The two books under review are terrific and amount, essentially, to benchmarks for any future scholarship on adjustment in Germany and Japan (especially in Germany). In what follows, I will briefly praise and then, in a more extended manner, criticize the volumes and the perspective on change in Germany and Japan that they embody. But the praise is genuine and should not be lost in the disproportionate space devoted to critique in this contribution.

Keywords: Germany; Japan; economic change; institutionalism
