抄録

This chapter looks towards Japan and discusses death and suicide resulting from the stress of overwork, offering a stark picture of the 'dark side' of the once highly touted 'Japanese miracle'. It shows how laws designed to prevent overwork and compensate for industrial injuries were undermined in Japan by judicial decisions and cultural practices, but concludes that the pressures of the 'new' economy may soon bring similar problems to workplaces everywhere.
