An Encyclopedic Dictionary of Conflict and Conflict Resolution, 1945-1996

By John E. Jessup | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

A number of basic sources were used to distill the material presented in this work. The backbone of the book was the nearly eleven thousand entries in my Chronology of Conflict and Resolution: 1945-1985, which was published by Greenwood Press in 1989. Several of the standard encyclopedias were referred to for verification of information, and this process was speeded up by using CD-Rom versions of several of the better selections. Facts on File was used extensively in preparing biographical information, as were a number of the more standardized biographical reference works. The details on terrorist groups and activities flowed from my personal collection of data on a subject upon which I dwelt heavily for nearly three decades. A variety of atlases were also used extensively in preparing the sketches on each country involved and in adapting a standardized method of locating the countries and places.

One of the better sources of information on the nations of the world is found in the Area Handbook Series prepared by American University and published by the Department of Army in the DA Pamphlet 550 series. Although a number of the individual volumes are somewhat out of date, they are still very useful. Much useful information was also found in the Acta, the Reviews, and the Bibliographies published by the Commission Internationale d'Histoire Militaire in Brussels. There are many good sources on material on the United States and the Soviet Union. The specific area of interest will determine the selection in these two areas.

To ease the reader's burden in further researching a particular subject, in many, but not all cases, I have given “Reading” suggestions at the end of an entry. These books represent only some of the sources of particular information on the subject and are all relatively recent vintage which should improve chances of finding them in a larger library or bookstore. This is at least a place to start, several are indeed themselves bibliographies, and all are in English. I must add that not all of these suggested readings agreed with any conclusions I may have reached in the writing of each article. Some are diametrically opposed to my view of the events, some of panegyrics to people I deem evil, some are propaganda. It is up to the readers to choose in their own quests for truth.
