Going into the second season of Keio U-Kyoto U collaborative course, we offer different entries to he frontier of Asia-Japan studies. The topics vary from the "ageing in Asia," to the "ethnic Chinese in Asia."
Given the nature of this course, which is a set of discreet lectures, we do not offer a set of reading assignments as such.For those who are new to the field of Asian studies, we recommend to start with the annual World Bank Report, available (PDF) through Internet. Check the World Bank website. Our suggestion is that you familiarize yourself with all sorts "statitistical" representations of East Asia. Of course, each annual report comes with the substantial text comments.
