Japan's remarkable penetration into foreign markets in industries ranging from automobiles to semiconductors has fueled great interest in Japanese foreign investment. Japan now exerts tremendous influence over the international economy. Backed by statistics and theory, this definitive work examines Japanese direct foreign investments around the world and across various industries since World War II. It explores Japan's overseas acquisitions in all corners of the globe, the internationalization of its financial services industry and the roots of its foreign investment including the rebuilding of its economy after World War II and its success in technological domination of key industries. The study begins with a general theoretical and historical overview of Japanese overseas investment. It then focuses on individual regions and countries in the world including the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Ocean region. Particular attention is addressed to the United States and Southeast Asia, the areas where most of Japan's overseas investments are concentrated. This work will be of interest to economists, businessmen, historians, scholars, and students of international business or economics. Businessmen and economists will find this book especially valuable with its leads on Japanese economic and corporate success.

Editorial Reviews

?Boger's timely bibliography covers the postwar era, especially the last few decades' of rapid increase in Japanese investment in the US and elsewhere. No closing date is specified, but entries indicate coverage into 1987. Only English-language materials whose primary emphasis is a US view of Japanese foreign investment are included. Books, both US and Japanese government publications, and periodical literature (except newspapers and news magazines') are the formats covered. The arrangement of material is regional after a beginning section of general works. Three separate indexes access author/editor, title, and subject. . . . The depth of coverage is good; for example, the coverage of both California and Hawaii by several sources is indicative of increasing Japanese interest in investing in those two states. Entries give standard bibliographic information plus annotations (40 to 75 words). . . . Recommended for academic and large public libraries with international business and economics collections.?-Choice
