Book review

There can be little doubt of the broad usefulness to China specialists of this Gordon and Shulman volume. The vast expansion of Chinese studies in the West since 1945 has left Chinese specialists grasping for bibliographic controls. The fact that this expansion has occurred so rapidly from almost a standing start means there has been a great influx of newly trained people. This, in turn, means an unusually large dissertation literature for the years since 1945, only a part of which has appeared in print. To some extent a specialist can keep up with the most recent China dissertation literature through the listings maintained by Shulman since 1969 in the AAS Newsletter and the Asian Studies Professional Review. It is quite a more difficult matter to control the whole of twenty-five explosive years of dissertation output, and to determine easily the relevance of individual items to one's own interests and how to obtain those items. Fortunately, Gordon and Shulman's Doctrinal Dissertations On China allows us to do these things. More than that, a thoughtful examination of its indexes will enable the user to achieve an overview of the state of research in Chinese studies - to know which disciplines, subject areas, and periods have received study and which have been neglected. -- Edgar Wickberg, Editor - Monographs, Occasional Papers, and Reference Series, AAS
