This study chronicles the success of the Japanese car in America. Starting with Japan’s first gasoline-powered car, the Takuri, it examines early Japanese inventors and automotive conditions in Japan; the arrival of Japanese cars in California in the late 1950s; consumer and media reactions to Japanese manufacturers; what obstacles they faced; initial sales; and how the cars gained popularity through shrewd marketing. Toyota, Honda, Datsun (Nissan), Mazda, Subaru, Isuzu, and Mitsubishi are profiled individually from their origins through the present. An examination follows of the forced cooperation between American and Japanese manufacturers, the present state of the industry in America, and the possible future of this union, most importantly in the race for a more environmentally-sound vehicle.

The automotive industry is waking up to the fact that hybrid electric vehicles could provide an answer to the ever-increasing need for lower-polluting and more fuel-efficient forms of personal transport. This is the first book to give comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the hybrid vehicle design, from its power plant and energy storage systems, to supporting chassis subsystems necessary for realizing hybrid modes of operation. Key topics covered include hybrid propulsion system architectures, propulsion system sizing, electric traction system sizing and design, loss mechanisms, system simulation and vehicle certification. Offering in-depth coverage of hybrid propulsion topics, energy storage systems and modelling, and supporting electrical systems, this book will be an invaluable resource for practicing engineers and managers involved in all aspects of hybrid vehicle development, modelling, simulation and testing. It will also be of interest to postgraduate students in the field. About the Author: Dr. John M. Miller is founder of J-N-J Design Services P.L.C., where he serves as principal engineer. Dr. Miller worked for 20 years on electric and hybrid vehicle programs and vehicle electrical system simulation at the Ford Motor Company research laboratories. He was technical project leader of Ford's 42V Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) product development program, and represented Ford on several high visibility initiatives, including the US Department of Energy's partnership for a new generation of vehicle (PNGV) initiative and the Virginia Institute of Technology and State University lead NSF Center for Power Electronic Systems (CPES). He remains active on the MIT-Industry Consortium on Advanced Automotive Electrical and Electronic Components, and is an adjunct professor at Michigan State University, where he has taught a graduate-level course in electrical machines and drives, and at Texas A&M University, where he has lectured on hybrid propulsion systems. Dr. Miller holds 43 US patents and has authored 106 publications on automotive electrical and electronic systems. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.

Presenting a comprehensive survey of the telecommunications industry in Japan, Taplin and Wakui cover the different sectors of the industry – including mobile, broadband and satellite, whilst considering key questions such as the structure and economics of the industry, government policy, and international relations issues connected to the industry. The volume brings together unique analysis by renowned experts in the telecommunications field. One major overall problem is that, unlike many other industries, Japan has lagged behind other countries in telecommunications. Japanese Telecommunications considers why this should be so, showing how far this is attributable to an unmodernized industry structure, and assessing the measures being taken to address the problem. After over a decade of struggle, Japan has recorded rapid uptake of broadband, and Japanese advanced mobile services have become increasingly successful on a global scale. Japan has also undergone regulatory reform, and competition policy is now given top priority by government. Taplin and Wakui examine the most recent developments and provide signposts for the future.
