Theses and Dissertations on Asians in the United States with Selection References to Other Overseas Asians.
Ong, Paul M., Comp.; Lum, William Wong, Comp.
This bibliography is stated to be a major revision of an earlier compilation of theses and dissertations relating to Asians in America, and includes approximately 800 new titles. The titles are arranged by ethnic groups within broad geographic categories, and topical areas are outlined for ethnic subdivisions containing a substantial number of citations. A key word index provided is limited to broad topics not used in the textual divisions to proper nouns, and to a more specific geographic cross-listing. Although no institutional index is included, a cursory examination of the compilation is stated to show that more than a third of the theses and dissertations were done at the University of Hawaii, University of Chicago, Columbia University, University of Southern California, Stanford University, and University of California, Los Angeles and Berkeley campuses. The citations were selected primarily on the basis of key words and phrases in the titles. The listing on overseas immigrant Asians is divided into two parts. "Asians in the Other Americas" contains works on the Asian experience in Canada and Latin America. "Other Overseas Asians" primarily centers around the Southeast Asian countries although it includes some works on the Asian experience in Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and parts of Europe.
