Southeast Asia: A Bibliography for Undergraduate Libraries. Occasional Publication Number Eleven.
Jacob, Louis A., Ed.; And Others
This bibliography, one of a series, represents an effort to develop a graded subject list of over 1500 titles relevant to the study of South Asia (the majority of which have been published in the last twenty years) which are appropriate for undergraduate libraries. Its emphasis is upon social studies and the humanities. Selections were made from lists of titles submitted by area specialists. It is intended as a book selection guide for college libraries not likely to have expertise in selecting available to them. Arrangement of entries is in sections by country -- Afghanistan, Pakistan, Ceylon, Nepal, and India -- preceded by a general section on South Asia, each section comprised of subsections based on type of publications and subject areas. Items are ranked according to those in Western languages which are in print and available. Entries are graded as to degree of essentiality for undergraduate collections and keyed to annotations in existing bibliographies and selected journal reviews. Citations for major journals and a few government documents are provided while newspapers are excluded. Out of print titles, reprints, and materials in microform are included; prices are excluded. The author index serves as a cross reference. Related document is SO 003 314. (Author/SJM)
