Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Japanese Manufacturing Investment in Europe" is a stimulating examination of the causes and consequences of the growing internationalization of Japanese business and Japan's increasing involvement in EC countries. In the mid-1980s, a veritable surge of foreign direct investment (FDI) among the five great powers took place. Japanese manufacturing investment in Europe occupied the forefront of this unprecedented growth and involved an even wider range of industries than before. This volume provides twenty-seven detailed case studies of Japanese companies in order to demonstrate the diversity of adopted strategies. Roger Strange reviews the current literature on FDI and trade policy and asserts the need for a theoretical framework in assessing the political economy of foreign direct investment.

Synopsis:

Japanese manufacturing investment in the European Community has grown dramatically over the last twenty years. At first, instances of investment were few, concentrated in a small number of industrial sectors. But since the mid-1980's there has been a surge of investment in a much wider range of industries.

This volume details the growth of Japanese manufacturing investment in Europe in fourteen industrial sectors. The impact of Japanese competition and direct investment on European industries is considered in the context of the emergence of the three major trading blocs: the United States, Japan and the EC. Roger Strange concludes by making important policy recommendations, and arguing for the need for a new theoretical framework for assessing the political economy of foreign direct investment.
