Language and Area Studies: East Central and Southeastern Europe. A Survey.
Jelavich, Charles, Ed.
East Central and Southeastern Europe, considered as "Eastern Eruope," are the subject of a three-year survey of language and area studies undertaken by several committees of specialists of the American Council of Learned Societies. Four basic goals of the project include: (1) a survey of graduate training and research needs, (2) an evaluation of the role of East European studies in undergraduate instruction, (3) a survey of the "state of the art" in 15 disciplines, and (4) a two-volume bibliography and reference guide of 6,000 annotated titles. This book comprises the research findings and recommendations of leading scholars under the following chapter headings: (1) graduate training and research needs, (2) undergraduate instruction, (3) history, (4) international relations, (5) political science, (6) economics, (7) demography, (8) geography, (9) sociology, (10) anthropology, (11) law, (12) philosophy, (13) literature, (14) folklore and ethnomusicology, (15) musicology, (16) linguistics, (17) a survey of west and south Slavic languages, and (18) a survey of Albanian, Hungarian, modern Greek, and Romanian languages. Tables are occasionally used and an author index is provided. (RL)
