East Asia: A Bibliography for Undergraduate Libraries.
Gillin, Donald; And Others
This bibliography, similar to others on Asia and Africa, contains over 2000 titles relevant to the study of East Asia. Book, journal, and a few government citations -- the majority of which have been published within the last twenty years -- emphasize the humanities and social studies. Intended as a book selection guide, entries are graded as to degree of essentiality for undergraduate collections. Arrangement of entries is by section of the country -- China, Japan, Korea, preceded by a general section dealing with more than one country in the area. Each section is comprised of subsections by type of publications and subject areas. An attempt is made to produce basic reading lists with similar subject headings for each country under Bibliographies, Reference Books, General Books, Geography, Government and Politics, Economics, Sociology, Anthropology, and Linguistics, Language and Literature, Philosophy and Religion, Fine Art and Architecture, Performing Arts, Education and Mass Communication, and Science and Technology. A method of periodization of East Asian history that includes early, early modern, late modern, and contemporary history is employed. An author index serves as a cross reference. Related documents are ED 063 236, ED 064 226, and ED 064 227. (SJM)
