Asia--a continent with a rich past and a vital recent history. For the past several decades, students and scholars worldwide have studied with great interest the growing influence of Asia on the world--economically, politically, and socially.
Nearly 7,000 scholars worldwide participate in national and regional conferences focusing on the study of Asian life each year, presenting original research reports and findings on a variety of current and historical topics ranging from economics and political science to history and literature. To make this research readily available to students and professionals, UMI® has compiled conference proceedings on microfiche, including documents from the annual Bengal Studies Conference at Bucknell University.
More than 60 papers have been compiled and filmed in this collection. Asian Studies Conference Papers is a valuable resource for students and practicing professionals in a variety of fields, including Asian and world history, economics, political science, sociology, and classic and modern Asian literature.
