Friends. Japanese and Tennesseans. A model of U.S.-Japan Cooperation. Photographs by Robin Hood - used book

1978, ISBN: 0870117599

ID: 4882872

This warm, wise, and richly illustrated book offers a journey of discovery through Japan and Tennessee, exploring their surprising cultural affinities and their exemplary economic partnership - perhaps the most productive association between Japan and an American state. Elected governor in 1978, Lamar Alexander has led Tennessee to win more than a billion dollars in Japanese investment. More than 30 Japanese plants have settled in "The Volunteer State," creating nearly 8,000 jobs for Tennesseans, spurring the state's economy, and forging unique and often unexpected friendships between the peoples of these two far-flung cultures. In his many trips to Japan, Governor Alexander has successfully negotiated with Japanese firms while taking the time to get acquainted with Japanese at all levels, from cab drivers to corporate executives to Prime Minister Nakasone. In FRIENDS, he writes about his encounters with sharp insight and keen understanding, mixing analysis with intimate anecdotes that reveal his love for the land and people of both Japan and his native state. He also examines the major myths and misconceptions about trade with Japan that are now clouding U.S.--Japan relations, and provides useful tips for other Americans negotiating with the Japanese. Robin Hood's magnificent photographs highlight the special beauties of Japan and Tennessee, and show just how much their people have in common: they share the same latitude and similar landscapes, comparable rural pasts and rec americas,history,state and local History, Distributed in the U.S. through Harper & Row

Title:

Friends: Japanese and Tennesseans: A Model of U.S.-Japan Cooperation

ISBN:

This warm, wise, and richly illustrated book offers a journey of discovery through Japan and Tennessee, exploring their surprising cultural affinities and their exemplary economic partnership - perhaps the most productive association between Japan and an American state. Elected governor in 1978, Lamar Alexander has led Tennessee to win more than a billion dollars in Japanese investment. More than 30 Japanese plants have settled in "The Volunteer State," creating nearly 8,000 jobs for Tennesseans, spurring the state's economy, and forging unique and often unexpected friendships between the peoples of these two far-flung cultures. In his many trips to Japan, Governor Alexander has successfully negotiated with Japanese firms while taking the time to get acquainted with Japanese at all levels, from cab drivers to corporate executives to Prime Minister Nakasone. In FRIENDS, he writes about his encounters with sharp insight and keen understanding, mixing analysis with intimate anecdotes that reveal his love for the land and people of both Japan and his native state. He also examines the major myths and misconceptions about trade with Japan that are now clouding U.S.--Japan relations, and provides useful tips for other Americans negotiating with the Japanese. Robin Hood's magnificent photographs highlight the special beauties of Japan and Tennessee, and show just how much their people have in common: they share the same latitude and similar landscapes, comparable rural pasts and recent industrial progress, and many of the same values about hard work and good living, family ties and neighborliness, nature and tradition. FRIENDS provides a captivating look at the flourishing economic relationship of Tennessee and Japan and at the rewarding human ties it has produced. There are important lessons here for all Americans concerned with U.S.--Japan cooperation - from the governor whose state has been most successful at it.
