More Like Us is a celebration of American openness to immigration and aspiration and a skeptic's tour of the rigidity of Asian societies.
  StPLCLibrary | Jan 18, 2015 |
An extended essay on the differences between the United States and Japan, written at a time when Japan and Japanese methods appeared to be the prototype of the future. Rather than attempt to be second best imitators of the Japanese, we should be "more like ourselves" and utilize the cultural strengths that we do possess: the willingness to change, to remake ourselves, and to uproot ourselves.

This book does not explicitly consider immigration, but twenty five years after publication it is noteworthy that an additional difference between ourselves and the Japanese is a willingness to accept immigrants. The population in Japan is now declining and the Japanese population is aging, while amid the rancorous debated here about immigration our population continues to grow, in large part from immigration.
