This thesis examines trade and technology transfer between the Soviet Union and Japan. The paper discusses the subject from the perspective of both Japan and the USSR and considers the impact of the United States' and other nations' influence on their bilateral relationship. The thesis delineates the affect of political, military, and socio-psychological factors on the economic foundation of the issue. The USSR and Japan are strongly complementary in purely economic terms, but trade is particularly hindered by political and strategic considerations. Both nations claim rightful ownership of the 'Northern Territories' a small group of islands between Japan's Hokkaido and the USSR's Kurile Islands. Japan's government will not promote trade until the islands are returned; the USSR will not give up the islands, which are a part of its strategic nuclear bastion plan. Nonetheless, Japan's private business sector will push for as much trade as possible with the USSR, separating economics from politics. The USSR will promote trade with Japan whenever it can achieve a significant advantage toward modernization and revitalization of the Soviet economy
