The Japanese informal empire in China, 1895-1937 by Peter Duus( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building upon a previous study of Japan's colonial empire, this volume examines the period from 1895 to 1937 when Japan's economic, social, political, and military influence in China expanded so rapidly that it supplanted the influence of Western powers competing there. These fourteen essays discuss how Japan's "informal empire" emerged in China and how that "empire" influenced Japan's own internal development. "Describes in rich detail Japan's organization of a wide range of cultural, educational, economic, military, and bureaucratic institutions that formed the mainstays of Japanese influence in China along with the trading, manufacturing, intelligence-gathering, and political intriguing which they managed."--Wen-hsin Yeh, The Journal of Asian StudiesOriginally published in 1991.

The struggle across the Taiwan strait : the divided China problem by Ramon Hawley Myers( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1949, China divided into two regimes, with People's Republic of China controlling the mainland and Taiwan, or the Republic of China, controlling a group of offshore islands. This book describes how, for more than half a century, these competing regimes have struggled to unify China, until "political earthquake" of Taiwan's 2000 election raised the stakes. The authors detail the two regimes' move toward détente, its eventual collapse in 1990s, and analyze aftermath of Taiwan's 2000 and 2004 elections. They explain how "Taiwan nationalism" promoted by current regime, calling for Taiwan's independence from China, has intensified conflict between the regimes and locked both sides into a new contest that has increased probability of war. Whether negotiations on divided China issue can occur soon, the authors conclude, depends on how ideological and political markets influence Taiwan and mainland China's political life and beliefs. If Taiwan nationalism grows, with a new generation educated to downgrade importance of their Chinese identity, tensions would nurture separatism from China and war would be inevitable. Whatever Taiwan's people decide, the issue will continue to be a problem for leaders of both sides--Publisher's description

The effect of Japanese investment on the world economy : a six-country study, 1970-1991( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fueled by a high domestic savings rate and by the paper profits of Japan's bubble economy, Japanese foreign direct investment surged between 1970 and 1991 as Japanese firms moved overseas to avail themselves of cheap labor, avoid trade conflict, and acquire real estate and natural resources. When Japan's financial bubble finally burst and foreign direct investment declined, however, Japan's securities and real estate markets turned sour. Economic indicators slid downward and flattened as the world experienced its worst economic depression since the end of the World War II

Greater China and U.S. foreign policy : the choice between confrontation and mutual respect( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of internationally prominent China scholars held a conference at the Hoover Institution in December 1994 to discuss how U.S. policy can best respond to recent changes in China and Taiwan. Despite the diversity of their perspectives, their analyses made clear that a "get-tough" policy would ultimately fail. This volume presents, in ten authoritative chapters, the first comprehensive overview of this complex topic - along with sound reasoning to support its provocative conclusion. The papers included here not only analyze the recent evolution of Chinese foreign policy toward Taiwan, Taiwan's development and policy on unification, security and economic issues, and the problem of human rights but also set forth the main political and diplomatic visions that will affect the future of greater China. As a whole, this book coherently formulates the principles that should guide U.S. policy toward greater China in the next decades

Shaping a new economic relationship : the Republic of Korea and the United States by U.S.-Korea Economic Relations Conference( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This conference volume examines the causes of the huge trade surplus between the United States and the Republic of Korea in the 1980s (in Korea's favor) and how that trade imbalance was eliminated by 1991 without trade volume declining."--BOOK JACKET. "Both countries had enjoyed friendly relations ever since the United States led U.N. troops to save South Korea from being taken over by communist North Korea. From the mid-fifties until the early eighties, their economic relationship was based on a complementary trade relationship instead of an adversarial one. Korea exported labor-intensive products such as consumer electronics, textiles, and footwear, and the United States exported resource-based and agricultural products and capital goods such as chemicals and machinery."--BOOK JACKET. "In these same years Korea rapidly expanded its manufacturing exports, and those to the United States reached a peak in the late 1980s. After 1980 the Reagan administration tax reform and the U.S. government's failure to cut spending pumped enormous income into the private sector, which encouraged consumers and business firms to purchase imports on an unprecedented basis, chiefly from East Asia."--BOOK JACKET. "American manufacturing firms were adversely affected by high interest rates in the early eighties and the flood of low-priced, high-quality foreign imports. Misinformation and misunderstanding of these complex trends led many businesspeople to blame America's expanding trade imbalance, especially with countries like Korea, mainly on trade barriers erected by America's trading partners. Turning to Washington for help, American businesspeople demanded their government reduce the flood of foreign imports and increase U.S. access to foreign markets. The Republic of Korea was targeted for such action."--BOOK JACKET. "The United States applied a three-pronged policy to reduce the Korean-U.S. trade deficit. Under threat of sanctions, Korea speeded-up the dismantling of its tariff system. More important, U.S. Treasury policies compelled Korea to appreciate its currency, the won, and introduce a flexible rather than a fixed-exchange-rate system. Finally, the United States restricted some Korean imports. By 1991 the trade balance had shifted in favor of the United States, but at the expense of deteriorating political relations between the two countries."--BOOK JACKET. "This volume evaluates these complex developments and offers policy recommendations for how both countries in the future might avoid the bitter politicization of trade disputes of the recent past and expand their economic relations."--BOOK JACKET
