Published in 1964, Silk and Insight (Kinu to Meisatsu), is one of the last major novels of Yukio Mishima to be translated into English. Besides being a good novel, as one would expect from Mishima, it stands as an excellent piece of social commentary on the transformation of Japanese business from the old paternalism--which by no means was benevolent--to a new world where labor unions were as active as any other institution in changing their image.
