Bretzke, James T. 2001 0-7734-7318-1 584 pages This comprehensive research bibliography compiles, annotates, indexes and cross-references resources in the principal Western languages of English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish which focus on East Asia (principally China, Japan, and Korea) in the primary areas of philosophy and religious studies, with supporting resources in theology, history, culture, and related social sciences. The bibliography is organized both thematically and geographically, and the index gives not only author’s and subject’s names, but includes a wide range of topics and sub-topics as well. A notable additional feature of this bibliography is the inclusion of extensive Internet-based resources, such as a wide variety of web-sites, discussion lists, electronic texts, virtual libraries, online journals and related material which allow for easy further research.
“Of particular interest are subsections on current subjects of interest (business and economic ethics, human rights, etc,). Bretzke’s inclusion of annotated East Asia Internet Resources is also extremely useful.” – Philip L. Wickeri
Derayeh, Minoo 2023 1-4955-1066-2 508 pages "[This book] conveys how quest for justice daad is intertwined with patriotism (mihan doosti or parasti [love for the homeland]) and religions. I further show how this is depicted by Abulqasem Ferdowsi in stories since the establishment of the earliest mythological and historical dynasties in Iranshahr. Ferdowsi (tenth-eleventh century CE), the great Iranian poet, depicts many colorful stories of this nature in his everlasting epic the Shahnameh (The King's Letter). These stories have become a generative force for Persian literature." -From the author's introduction
