This comprehensive bibliography and documentation represents a helpful reference book for everybody who wants to do women's or gender studies in respect to the regions of ASIA and OCEANIA or who wants to know more about aboriginal women and women's studies in AUSTRALIA. The publication covers amongst other topics women's work and women's movements in all the countries of these regions including references to publications on women in the Arab world and on "Women and Islam".
The volume contains monographs, articles in contributed works and journals and so called grey literature, mostly published between 1970 and 1996 in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and other languages. Its because of the very large number of references in English (and also other languages), that makes the documentation an invaluable source of information to academics, students and anyone interested and working in the field of Development Studies and/or Women's Studies even if she or he does not speak German.
The bibliography is structured by regional, systematic and historical aspects so that it indirectly gives an overview about current research.
Keywords refering to the texts, review-articles, location of books and distribution adresses are frequently added. Cross references and an author-index facilitate searching for particular items. Several maps give you a geographic orientation.
Part 4 about AFRICA
Part 5/6 about AMERICA
and Part 7/8 with bibliographies, DIRECTORIES of womens organizations, journals & newsletters worldwide, and a list of audiovisual MEDIA on Women & Development.
Please note: All the four volumes contain a very large number of references in English (and in some other languages) so that you do not need to know the publishers language (German) or understand the German title ("Frauenforschung International").
Our institute (RLI) and association (ViF) - a non profit-NGO - exists since 1990/1991.
Our aim is to support womens activities and gender studies, especially in respect to women/gender & development, including ecology, science & technology.
