Description
"Transplants, Perrucci argues, are a response to changes in both the world auto industry and the relationship among federal, state, and local governments that results from increased local demand for services and the decline in federal revenue streams. Transplants represent "a significant and historic transformation" in the US political economy illustrative of "the emergence of a new regional economy based on close cooperation between private corporations and state governments"... Perrucci's analysis is interesting, astute, and convincing. He makes a strong case that the transplant phenomena is a harbinger of a new social structure of accumulation. Upper-division undergraduates and above." --C. H. A. Dassbach, Choice "It is one of the best works written on the subject and a pleasure to read. I strongly recommend it." --Choong Soon Kim, Social Forces "Perucci breaks new ground by examining the interaction of the six Japanese or Japanese-U.S. joint venture auto assembly plants . . . This book is important reading for anyone interested in transplant phenomenon. It sets a high standard." --Martin Kenney, American Sociological Association "Robert Perrucci's book is a significant contribution to our understanding of why six Japanese automobile companies located plants in the Midwestern United States between 1982 and 1989." --Mark Young, Administrative Science Quarterly "Perrucci is interested in the exterior aspects of the process, focusing his attention on the ways in which transplants related to the various constituencies in the host communities to which they migrated. This focus, together with the book's modest size, makes Perucci's book useful as a general introduction to transplants. It is accessible to nonspecialists and even advanced undergraduates, while still containing enough original material to engage researchers in the area." --Michael Schwartz, American Journal of Sociology "Perucci's work is laudably interdisciplinary, sweeping from a consideration of international political economy, through location theory, economic geography, and econometrics, to sociology." --Carl Aaron, Economic Geography "[Perucci's] book is a systematic case study of six Japanese auto manufacturers that located new assembly plants in the United States. . . . Notable is Perucci's delineation of the tacit support given by the media to the transplants and the legitimacy this provides state officials. He also provides some telling testimony of the sorts of concerns some workers have with these new production systems" --Ian M. Taplin, Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science "Robert Perucci's book is a bold attempt to analyze and delineate the nuances behind leading Japanese Automaker's decision to put all their eggs in six carefully chosen Midwest and border south states in the heartland of America. . . . Perucci's book is an important landmark in providing a detailed account about the Japanese auto makers' decision-making strategies in setting up ambitious ventures in foreign lands." -- Mohammed B. Alam, International Social Science Review
