9780838912096: The ALA Guide to Researching Modern China

As China has evolved into an economic superpower, interest in its culture and current place in the world has skyrocketed; China Studies are now taught in almost every college or university in the U.S., as well as in many junior high and high schools. Covering modern China, not just Chinese culture from an historical perspective, this important new book fills a sizeable gap in the literature. Originating as a Carnegie Whitney Award-winning book project, Ye's research guide goes beyond a mere list of print resources to reflect the predominant role of digital resources in the changing landscape of scholarly research, teaching critical information literacy concepts and skills in the field of China Studies by

  • Sketching in basic facts and figures of Chinese history and culture from antiquity to the present
  • Detailing key English- and Chinese-language resources in literature, government, statistics, art, film, history, philosophy, religion, economics, law, politics, and more
  • Offering strategies for finding research sources like articles and dissertations, as well as primary sources such as government documents and archives
  • Including guidance on how to acquire print and electronic resources in Chinese
This richly detailed, up-to-date work will guide researchers at all levels to the most important resources in the field of Modern China Studies.

About the Author:

Yunshan Ye is the academic liaison librarian for anthropology, East Asian studies, and political science at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He is also serving as chair of humanities on the Collection Development Council of the Sheridan Libraries and Museums of Johns Hopkins University and is editor-in-chief of the CALA Occasional Paper Series, a peer reviewed journal published by the Chinese American Librarian Association (CALA). He has taught national and regional workshops for scholars and librarians on the topic of researching modern China.

Review:

"This professional resource is awesome indeed ... Librarians will appreciate the specific sources cited, but teachers who are not as familiar with finding resources will appreciate the guidance for retrieving sources, as well as criteria to evaluate the quality of the resources. Discussion of the difference in sources for the popular press and sources for scholarly research is valuable for the advanced high school student or teacher." --Voya

"All resources are presented from general to specific and in a step-by-step fashion that makes this volume truly useful for nonspecialists. Reflecting an old Chinese proverb--'good tools are prerequisite to the successful execution of a job'--this guide serves as a ramp to researching fast-slowing information in modern China." --Choice
