Encyclopedia of Modern Asia. Vol.6 (Turkic Languages - Zuo Zongtang)

isbn: 0-684-80617-7
: 551
: english
: PDF

In more than 2,600 articles, this encyclopedia covers the breadth of Asia, largely during the 20th century, from Turkey to Southeast Asia... Articles about countries typically include an overall profile (geography, the people, language, history, politics, economy) and more focused topical articles (economic system, education system, history, political system), giving readers the option of a summary approach or more detailed coverage. Many other topics appear by subject, with separate articles by country or region (e.g., Literature-Central Asia, Literature-China). Given the varying ways in which topics are presented, effective use of the encyclopedia is greatly enhanced by a lengthy Reader's Guide, repeated in each volume, and a subject index. Typical of good encyclopedias, all the articles are signed (the preface notes the participation of more than eight hundred scholars and experts from around the world), include references to related articles, and conclude with Further Reading bibliographies. Other features include nearly 1,400 black-and-white maps (a section of regional maps is repeated in each volume), photographs, tables, chronologies, sidebars (many quoting source documents), and a roster of contributors... Articles vary in depth, with many too superficial for more than quick reference or undergraduate background information. Nevertheless, the encyclopedia will be a unique resource appropriate for most reference collections. Summing Up: Essential. General and academic collections.
