Guide to Reference Sources on Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and Russia and East Europe: Selected and Annotated.
Kennedy, James R., Jr.; And Others
This selected annotated bibliography of reference sources is designed to help college students prepare for the future by identifying critical sources on the societies and cultures of most of the world's people who have long been neglected in higher education. Encyclopedias, handbooks, and yearbooks are listed first under each area. Next are the general bibliographies, many of which cite the most important books and articles on an area and arrange them under disciplines generally taught in the liberal arts curriculum. Finally, more specialized sources are listed, arranged primarily by discipline. The guide has also been prepared with the needs of college libraries in mind. Some of the sources are recommended for all libraries, while others are recommended only for libraries serving area studies programs or for institutions when a particular course is offered in the subject or region. By scanning the last sentence or two of each entry, a librarian can quickly decide whether to consider buying a source. Sources were selected on the basis of the following criteria: 1) Usefulness for college courses on non-western areas; 2) Recency; 3) Languages most commonly taught in this country; and 4) Geographical coverage.
