Summary The "Encyclopedia of Modern Asia is a monumental new scholarly work, as expansive in scope as the continent of Asia itself. Nearly 700 contributors from around the world--including 25 Asian countries--provide 3,000 articles on Modern Asia from a global perspective. The "Encyclopedia's comparative, cross-cultural approach allows students and researchers to identify the similarities and differences among Asian nations and religions. The work focuses on Asia in the modern world--including Central Asia, the Middle East and the Far East--and contemporary issues are given full and authoritative treatment. Historical articles emphasize people, places, events and developments that have had a lasting influence on Asia.
