Explores the central values of Japan, Germany, and the U.S. and focuses on what drives each of these societies. In America, freedom and diversity are primary values; in Japan, conformity and a powerful sense of nationalism prevail. Germany stands between the two, asserting individualism but striving more than the U.S. for social harmony and consensus. Shows how education is a metaphor for the contrasts in the three societies.
