Korean and Japanese women : an analytic bibliographical guide by Hesung Chun Koh( Book )
4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
This book is a selective bibliography and index of materials on Korean and Japanese women, their history, social and cultural patterns, sex roles, family and kinship patterns, and other characteristics. Designed to assist researchers in the systematic selection of information for descriptive or comparative research on Korean and Japanese women, the bibliography contains about 600 entries, including autobiographies, legal codes, books, journal articles, conference papers, and dissertations in English, Japanese, or Korean, issued between 1789 and 1979. Documents have been assigned identification numbers for convenient cross-reference, and are classified according to five main types of information: time, geographic location, unit of study, and data quality control factors (items about author background, research methodology, and nature of the data, which provide a means for evaluating materials reliability). Several indexes have been generated by combining categories from the information types. The bibliography consists of two books. Book one presents abbreviated citations by historical time periods and provides five analytical subject indexes; indexes of selected characteristics of a document's author, research design, and population under study; and author and title indexes. Book two provides complete bibliographic information and annotations for each document. (Author/MJL)

Family in transition : a study of 300 Yugoslav villages by Vera St Erlich( file )
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Mrs. St. Ehrlich, a leading Yugoslav sociologist, seized the opportunity just before World War II to examine objectively the fast-vanishing style of life of Yugoslav peasants and villagers. This book, based on a widely distributed questionnaire and many interviews, provides a new picture, based on sympathetic understanding of family relationships and customs in 300 villages. The early chapters deal with the historical background of Yugoslavia and lay a groundwork for the assessment of the influence of centuries of Austrian and Ottoman domination, the brief years of independence, and the recent penetration of a money economy. Subsequent chapters explore attitudes and traditions relating to intra-family relationships.Originally published in 1966.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.
