    Abstract

    Tesis ini mengkaji punca-punca luar dan dalam negeri perhubungan Jepun-Malaysia dalam bidang isu pembangunan dan perdagangan. Ia cuba menjelaskan bahawa perhubungan Jepun-Malaysia merupakan kontinuiti pensejarahan yang berakar umbi pada zaman menjelang Perang Dunia Kedua. Kepentingan Jepun di Malaysia pada zaman menjelang Perang Dunia Kedua dan semasa perang tersebut adalah berdasarkan kepada keperluan-keperluan ekonomi Jepun. Ini telah menyebabkan tindakan Jepun supaya mengendalikan sumber asli yang diperlui bagi industri-industri Jepun. This thesis examines the external and domestic sources of Japanese-Malaysian relations in the issue-area of development and trade. It attempts to show that these relations constitute an historical continuit-y, orginating in the pre-World War II period. Japanese interest in Malaya on the eve of and during World War II was premised upon Japan's economic needs geared ultimately at the control of Malayan natural resources which were of vital importance to Japanese industries. Japan's early economic penetration was evident by the presence of a small but growing Japanese community in Malaya involved in trade and investment in the pre-war period and by the Japanese government's economic and political support as well as control and organization of the Japanese community. Early penetration was superceded by the direct control of the Malayan economy through military conquest and administrative control during the occupation of Malaya in the Second World War.
