The globalisation of the present day world economy means that more and more people are experiencing different cultures through their work. Focusing on the real experiences of workers in Japanese transnational finance companies, this book not only throws light on this specific case, but at the same time raises timely questions and insights into the newly-emerging multicultural work experience worldwide. Japanese Bankers in the City of London reflects on contemporary discussions in sociology, anthropology and cultural studies, of individual global movement and cultural interaction.

"Sakai's heavy emphasis on life story interviews provides convincing insights into the often grim realities of the personal circumstances involved. It would be no exaggeration to say that anyone thinking of working in a cross-cultural environment would be well advised to read this book on the "look-before-you-leap" principle. -Stephen Church in Japan Quarterly, July-September 2000, pg. 97."
