The 1970s and 1980s saw a radical expansion of manufacturing from developing countries, triggering off a new type of trade conflict in world trade. The response of industrial countries has been multi-fold, ranging from protection in sensitive industries to preference. This book takes stock, and evaluates the trade policy measures of Japan, USA and the EC, towards developing countries, with a realistic, "non-dependency" approach. Other works by Ippei Yamazawa include "Economic Development and International Trade: The Japanese Model", "Review of Pacific Co-operation Activities", "The Australian-Japan Relationship Toward the Year 2000" (with Peter D. Drysdale et al) and "The Economic Development of Japan and Korea: A Parallel with Lessons" (co-edited with C.H. Lee).
