inversion?? "Japanese are now as familiar with Western music as with their own, and they probably have as great a mastery of it as do most of the peoples of the Occident." I thought "as most of the peoples of the Occident do" is correct order. Is this a inversion, if so, why is the inversion used here?

To me (a native speaker from the Northerwestern US), these 2 choices mean the same thing, but the first way seems slightly more formal.
