Encyclopedia of modern Asia by David Levinson( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intended for students and non-specialists, this six-volume set does an outstanding job of covering all aspects of modern Asia (economics, religion, technology, politics, education, the arts, environmental issues, international relations, and scientific advances). Recognizing that there is not one Asian culture but many, the editors have been careful to stress both the interrelatedness and the tremendous variance of traditions. The set is equally useful for those researching common themes across Asian culture and those examining a particular country. Well illustrated and carefully indexed, the set is highly recommended for all public and academic libraries."--"The Best of the Best Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2003

Global perspectives on the United States : a nation by nation survey( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Worldviews of the U.S. have changed over time, particularly since 9/11 and the war in Iraq. Levinson and Christensen and a worldwide editorial board provide insight into the views of and perspectives on the U.S. and its government, people, policies, and culture. Although the editors had hoped to determine these perspectives based on key historical events such as the American Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the founding of the UN, they discovered that most nations form opinions of the U.S. by answering two questions--What has the U.S. done for or to us lately? and What may the U.S. do for or to us in the future? To answer these questions, more than 100 experts analyzed public statements, editorials and articles in the media, books, organizational reports, and their own observations and experiences to compile each nation's article. When the above resources were not available, surveys and interviews were used. The articles are based on opinions, whether of government officials, writers, or the people of a nation. Some 140 articles represent many countries and regions in the world, including Afghanistan, the Caribbean, Iran, Iraq, Madagascar, and Zimbabwe. Each article is written in a standardized format to include the following: an introduction, a statistical profile, "History of Relations with the United States," "Perspectives on the United States," and further reading (including many Internet resources). Sidebars are scattered throughout the two volumes and provide biographies of important authors and journalists whose writings influenced their fellow citizens, biographies of U.S. political figures, pivotal events and documents in world history, and excerpts from primary texts. A list of entries, an index, a world map, general sources of information, and a chronology of key world events influencing views of the U.S. are also included. - Publisher
