This revised and enlarged edition of A Selected List of Books and Articles on Japan in English, French, and German, first published in 1940, contains more than seventeen hundred titles which have been carefully chosen to guide the general reader and to aid the serious student of Japanese civilization in his research. Certain items included in the first edition have been eliminated, and hundreds of new entries, including material published during and after World War II, have been added. The list is divided into section which deal with bibliography, geography, history, political and social sciences, religion and philosophy, language, literature, art, et cetera. Subdivision of these sections facilitates the search for books and articles on a particular subject. The entries are arranged alphabetically by author and are individually numbered. An author, title, and subject index also contributes to the usefulness of the book. There is no other convenient selected list of this sort on Japan. Scholars, journalists, government personnel, and other who wish to obtain information concerning books and articles on Japan will find this book an invaluable guide.
