International Encyclopedia of Learned Societies and Academies

Synopsis

This book provides historical sketches of the most significant learned societies and academies located outside the United States. Complementing Kiger's Research Institutions and Learned Societies, which covers the United States, this volume includes profiles, arranged alphabetically, on 100 societies located in fifty countries. Each profile provides comprehensive, uniform, up-to-date information on both the history and current operations of the subject society. Entries conclude with sources of additional information. Appendices provide chronologies, genealogies, and topical listings. The work is fully indexed.
