This ground-breaking book explores the timely topic of how public and private business cooperation can solve complex social problems such as depopulation, derelict town centers, and decline of existing industries. Utilizing four dynamic case studies, Dr. Yushi Inaba defines a new theory of how inter-organizational collaboration can successfully create economic regional generation. Thoroughly researched, indexed, and illustrated with over fifty charts and tables, Japan's New Local Industry Creation is essential reading for any governmental or corporate executive facing the daunting challenges of managing public/private projects.

This book introduces the concept of joint entrepreneurship in regional regeneration projects in Japan. Such projects typically evolve; whether successfully or not depends on how joint entrepreneurs create a central field for collaboration and a bridge to their individual businesses or organizations. Going beyond individual and network entrepreneurship perspectives, Dr. Inaba provides significant new insights and theory which will be of great interest to scholars and practitioners of entrepreneurship, collaboration across organizations and regional development and regeneration.
