Studies of Korean and Japanese Women: An Analytical Guide.
Koh, Hesung Chun, Comp.; And Others
This is the first English language, book-length bibliography on Korean and Japanese women. The primary aim of the guide is to facilitate a wide variety of research, either descriptive or comparative, on Asian American women. The guide was designed with on-line interactive data retrieval in mind. Work toward this goal is now underway at the National Museum of Ethnology in Japan and Korean Scientific and Technological Information Center in Korea. Five hundred and eighty references issued between 1789 and 1979 are cited. Included are books, journal articles, chapters of books, conference papers, and dissertations. The guide consists of two books. There are separate sections on Korea and Japan throughout each book. Book I contains a wide variety of indexes including subject, title, and author; an author profile index, a research design and method index, a role profile index, and a major historical time period index. Book II provides a complete profile of each document indexed in Book I including an annotation. Following the document profiles, Book II also cites English translations of Japanese fiction by women and additional references. (Author/RM)
