Japan's Economic Role in Northeast Asia

By Edward J. Lincoln
University Press of America/New York: The Asia Society, 1987
65 pp. $14.00

This short monograph, part of The Asia Society's Asian Agenda Reports, is the best analysis of Japan's economic relations with Northeast Asia yet available. There are stimulating chapters on Japanese economic relations with the United States, China, the Soviet Union and the two Koreas. The author concludes that Japan must deal with two critical issues-it must be willing to shift its own growth away from export toward domestic demand, and it must continue to lower barriers to its markets in order to contain criticism from abroad.
