Asian States' Relations with the Middle East and North Africa: A Bibliography, 1950-1993

The states of Asia have been interested in the Middle East because of its vast oil reserves, on which many are dependent, and because of the revenues produced, creating large and important markets for the goods, services, and labor found in the Asian states.

Overview

The region known as the Middle East and North Africa has been a major focal point of international concern for centuries and that attention has increased and intensified since World War II. The states of Asia have been interested in the Middle East because of its vast oil reserves, on which many are dependent, and because of the revenues produced, creating large and important markets for the goods, services, and labor found in the Asian states. There is also a significant Muslim population in Asia. This volume provides the first comprehensive listing of the published (and some unpublished) theses and dissertations on the relationship between Asian states (from Pakistan in the West to Japan in the East) and the Middle East and North Africa. In this volume, the authors have assembled and classified the literature available in English and other western languages for the reader and researcher interested in learning more about the extent and variety of the relationship between these two regions. In this regard, bilateral and multilateral relationships in numerous spheres of activity have been examined.

One of the most critical areas for research today is the Middle East and North Africa, and with new technology giving us access to a plethora of information, it is a blessing to have people who will search the material for us and make it available in a convenient form. Included in the above bibliographies are not only books, but also microforms, essays, journal articles, unpublished theses and dissertations, government documents, etc. The first is a new edition of U.S. Foreign Policy and the Middle East/North Africa: A Bibliography of Twentieth Century Research (LJ 4/15/90). It continues to survey and compile the information of the previous volume and consists of 4,638 entries. Since the arrangement is by subject and the index is only by author/editor, there is no cross access to title entries or government documents, but this is only a small hindrance in this comprehensive and unique item. Formerly of marginal concern, there has recently been an upsurge of interest in Asian participation in the region. The Asian bibliography is an eclectic compilation of 1,156 entries arranged the same way. Although the works could be endless, there is enough information here for most scholars to pursue their research. Only European-language materials are included. A great asset for academic libraries.Louise Leonard, Univ. of Florida Libs., Gainesville
