Japanese-German Business Relations
Co-operation and Rivalry in the Interwar Period
By Akira Kudo
Routledge – 1998 – 304 pages
This volume approaches the history of Japanese-German relations from a business history perspective. Starting with an overview of Japanese-German relations which focuses on the environment, strategies and forms of inter-firm relations, Akira Kudo then uses case studies to provide a broader picture, before finally considering strategy, organisational strategy and technology and management transfer in the light of problems identified earlier.
