Fifteen years after Toyota announced it would build a manufacturing plant in the heart of the Bluegrass, Kentucky crafts are used to help sell Camrys at car dealerships in Japan and sushi has become a favorite of the Lexington restaurant scene. In early 2000, the state boasted more than 100 companies fueled by a total japanese investment of over $7 billion, employing more than 33,000 Kentuckians. Japan in the Bluegrass is the first study to focus on the regional and local impact of the globalization of Japanese businesses, particularly Toyota, in the United States. The contributors include geographers, political scientists, sociologists, economists, urban planners, and environmental scientists. The essays go beyond the traditional exploration of politics and economics to examine the social, cultural, and environmental effects of Japanese investment in Kentucky.
