This guide provides a brief overview and information on selected books, periodicals, and electronic resources on business, management, economic trends in East Asia. The guide includes English language material that looks at larger macroeconomic policies and trends, as well as those microeconomic issues that involve company management, corporate cultures, and conducting business in East Asian markets. The printed materials compiled in the guide were selected from the Library of Congress collection. The Library of Congress has an extensive collection that provides a valuable resource for both historical and contemporary research.
Each country section provides a brief list of useful sources on that county that are available within the Library of Congress. The Section on Internet Resources links to electronic resources that are freely available outside of the Library, including articles, working papers, and other studies from distinguished policy and academic institutions here in the U.S. and abroad. Links to country specific internet resources can be found in the sections for each country. However, it should be noted that this is not a comprehensive bibliography including all subject-related material within the Library's collection. Rather, it is hoped that these resources will serve as a brief introduction to relevant sources for individuals researching business, management and the economies of East Asia and to assist with additional research collection efforts.
For more detailed information, please Ask A Librarian.
