Korean History: A Bibliography by Kenneth Robison
"The subjects include not only political, diplomatic, and economic history, but also historical linguistics, art history, literature, philosophy and religion, and overseas Koreans, for example. Chronologically, coverage concludes in the 1960s. For studies of South Korea's politics and economy, 1961 is the stopping point; for South Korean foreign relations, coverage continues through the 1965 treaty with Japan and the Vietnam War. Coverage of North Korea continues into the late 1960s. I have not sought to compile a comprehensive list for each subject. Rather, I have provided publications that have appeared since the publication in 1980 of the annotated bibliography Studies on Korea: A Scholar's Guide and recent publications not cited in that work. This bibliography, then, is both an updating of and a supplement to that venerable reference."
