Security, Arms Control, and Conflict Reduction in East Asia and the Pacific: A Bibliography, 1980-1991

By Andrew McClean | Go to book overview

Preface and Acknowledgments

With the approach of the much-hailed "Pacific century", the past decade has witnessed a burgeoning of interest in the myriad aspects of peace and security issues in the East Asia/Pacific region. Accompanying the region's rapidly growing importance has been a recent proliferation of literature in English, of which this bibliography is a wide- ranging survey. The bibliography is intended to benefit the security studies community in universities and independent research institutes, especially those in East Asia and the Pacific, the region's security policy communities, as well as non-government organizations, journalists and students.

Work on the bibliography began in 1988 as part of a larger Asia/Pacific Security research program conducted at the Peace Research Centre, a part of the Division of Politics & International Relations within the Research School of Pacific Studies, Australian National University, Canberra. The bibliography includes much of the already large English-language literature published in the East Asia/Pacific region itself, particularly publications from non- commercial sources--academic, private and quasi-government research institutes, official sources, and the sizeable English-language press. A major undertaking early in the project was, therefore, to identify key sources of the specialist literature by contacting some 150 research institutes and publishers, located mostly throughout the East Asia/Pacific region and North America, the rest in South Asia and Europe.

Constraints of time, space, and available resources have necessitated using the best 60 percent of all the data amassed thus far for this project in the present volume. While the immense scope and size of the literature have also made full coverage impossible, this bibliography includes the most significant scholarly books and articles published in English since 1980, as well as an extensive cross-section of the current literature. The diversity of sources covered might have lent itself to bibliometric taxonomies based on categories such as author and publication type, but the present volume avoids these often problematic and misleading distinctions, simply by listing items within sub-sections by author (or title) in alphabetical order. Authors with multiple items within sub-sections are arranged chronologically.

This volume contains information about more than 8,100 different books, articles, dissertations and official publications concerning issues of international and intra-state security, arms control, conflict-avoiding diplomacy, and militarization in East Asia and the Pacific. Only English-language publications are cited, including translations and items appearing in multilingual journals. Publications cited have appeared between 1980 and the end of 1991, although a small number of revised editions of books published pre- 1980 and other volumes based on dissertations written before 1980 are included also. Just under half of all references appear in more than one subject-category, making a total 12,645 entries. Individual entries are numbered, selectively annotated, and indexed by author and subject. Almost two-thirds of all items are articles from periodicals ranging from scholarly journals through peace movement and defense industry-oriented periodicals. Of the non-article publications cited (including dissertations, working papers, and reports) half are written by one or more authors, some 12% are edited volumes and conference proceedings, and 38% are chapters contained within edited books.
