The Encyclopedia of Modern Asia is a monumental scholarly work, as expansive in scope as the continent of Asia itself.
Encyclopedia of Modern Asia
The Encyclopedia of Modern Asia extends the global coverage offered in Berkshire Publishing Group’s many publications on world cultures, ethnic relations, and the environment. This massive project – 3,000 articles, 2.2 million words of text, hundreds of photographs, 700 authors in 65 countries – is the definitive resource on the entire sweep of Asia, from the Muslim countries of Southeast Asia, across China, India, and the Central Asian republics to the Turkic nations of western Asia.
The Encyclopedia of Modern Asia provides students, scholars, professionals, and general readers access to information and knowledge about key people, places, events, issues, and process across Asia. Comprehensive, authoritative, and fully cross-disciplinary, the encyclopedia’s focus is Asia since 1850, but ample historical information makes clear how the past influences the present as well as the future.
