Patchwork Protectionism: Textile Trade Policy In The United States, Japan, And West Germany

At the core of this book is a play-by-play analysis of how textile policy was made in the United States until the early 1960s, in Germany from 1963 to 1969 and in Japan during the 1970s and early 1980s. The author's effort to explain the behavior is concerned more with the theories of other scholars than with the effects of the actions on the national economies, the international trading system or the structure of the world textile industry.
