An Introductory Bibliography for Japanese Studies
This bibliographical series is intended to facilitate access by non-Japanese
researchers to the most recent research trends in Japanese studies by
Japanese scholars, with an essay describing the major research trends
in various fields and a select bibliographical list with annotations on
the more important works. Each volume is made up of two parts, the social
sciences (part 1) and the humanities (part 2), which are published separately
in alternate years. We have been donating the bibliography series mainly
to overseas Japanese studies institutions and libraries.
Part 1 (Social Sciences) contains articles on law, political science, international
relations, economics, business administration, sociology, geography, cultural
anthropology, and education.
Part 2 (Humanities) contains articles on archaeology, history (general, ancient, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary), religion and philosophy, Japanese language, literature (general, ancient, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary), and the arts (graphic arts, music, dance, and theatre).
Previously published volumes include vol.1, part 1 to vol.15, part 1 for the Social Sciences and vol. 1, part 2 to vol. 15, part 2 for the Humanities.
