The Politics of Industrial Recruitment: Japanese Automobile Investment and Economic Development in the American States

Synopsis

The essays in this volume explore the phenomenon of foreign industrial recruitment in terms of the experience of six mid-American states--Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee--in attracting Japanese automobile assembly facilities. The contributors illumate the background to and the comparative setting for the mid-American competition for Japanese automobile plants in the era of international corporate flight, probe the dynamics of development in terms of six site-specific studies, and place these six state industrial recruitment experiences within the wider framework of federal-state relations.
