"This book provides a comprehensive and detailed review of the fifty years of EU-Japan relations. It is instructive since it also offers case studies of several trade disputes, which gives useful insights into how trade friction can be resolved [...] Overall, this book can be highly recommended as essential read for business and management researchers and practitioners who are both interested in and influenced by the EU as well as developments in Japan's economy and politics, as the current trends in what western commentators refer to loosely as `Abenomics' or the policies espoused by the government led by Japan's current Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe. The book should also find an appreciative audience among scholars researching international relations and trade policy in Europe and across the Asia-Pacific region. In the light of future FTA/EPA negotiations between the EU and Japan, this book can also be recommended as instructive reading for future international negotiators and others seeking bi-lateral diplomatic responsibilities along with international trade opportunities." - Eva Hanada, Kobe University, Japan
"...recommended reading for anyone who wants deeper knowledge of the past, present and future In Asia and the rest of the world."- Marie Soederberg The European Institute of Japanese Studies, Stockholm School of Economics, Stockholm, Sweden
