Annotated Bibliography on the Mekongby Mekong Press
The bibliography has been compiled and annotated by a team of experts actively involved in the issues affecting the region—scholars based in the Mekong countries themselves or their Asian near-neighbors. It thus offers a home-grown perspective that highlights many works that might otherwise remain little known outside the region. The entries include works not only in English and other European languages but also in Burmese, Japanese, Mandarin, Thai, and Vietnamese, giving publication details and commentary on more than a thousand titles across a range of subject areas covering the culture, natural resources, economics, social issues, and politics of the region. There are also more than two hundred additional entries that provide information about other bibliographies, leading journals, multimedia titles, websites, and organizations working in the area.
This book is an indispensable aid for anyone interested in the Mekong. It is also a companion volume to The Mekong Arranged and Re-arranged (Mekong Press, 2006), which explores the concepts that underpin the Mekong as a subregion historically, politically, and economically.
