Books - Primary

This page contains a selected bibliography of materials in Chinese, Japanese, and English that were published during the Sino-Japanese War of 1937-1945, or in the years immediately preceding or following it. They provide a variety of information about the war and reflect a range of viewpoints about the political and economic circumstances surrounding it. All titles link to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. Links to additional online content are included when available.

In principle, all newly catalogued Chinese materials follow the standards described in the ALA-LC Romanization Tables (Chinese) [PDF, 224KB]. Some older materials, however, were catalogued according to earlier romanization standards and their catalog records have not yet been revised to the new standards. For more details please see the Romanization & Search Strategies page.
