Korean and Japanese Women: An Analytic Bibliographical Guide.
Koh, Hesung Chun, Ed.
This book is a selective bibliography and index of materials on Korean and Japanese women, their history, social and cultural patterns, sex roles, family and kinship patterns, and other characteristics. Designed to assist researchers in the systematic selection of information for descriptive or comparative research on Korean and Japanese women, the bibliography contains about 600 entries, including autobiographies, legal codes, books, journal articles, conference papers, and dissertations in English, Japanese, or Korean, issued between 1789 and 1979. Documents have been assigned identification numbers for convenient cross-reference, and are classified according to five main types of information: time, geographic location, unit of study, and data quality control factors (items about author background, research methodology, and nature of the data, which provide a means for evaluating materials reliability). Several indexes have been generated by combining categories from the information types. The bibliography consists of two books. Book one presents abbreviated citations by historical time periods and provides five analytical subject indexes; indexes of selected characteristics of a document's author, research design, and population under study; and author and title indexes. Book two provides complete bibliographic information and annotations for each document. (Author/MJL)
