Discover Joint Publications Research Service Reports
China has emerged as a global power. We can all recite the formidable facts: most populous state on earth. Second largest global economy. World's largest military. But what do we really know about a culture half a world away, the machinations of the country's ruling party, or the day-to-day lives of its citizens? Where can one find authentic accounts that provide unfiltered insight into a nation's socioeconomic, political, environmental, military, religious, and scientific issues and events-including those that reveal the naked truth about China's inexorable rise? Enter Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS) Reports, 1957-1995, the ideal resource for developing a holistic understanding of cultures across the globe. This digital collection features English-language translations of foreign-language monographs, reports, serials, journals and newspapers from regions throughout the world—four million pages from 130,000+ reports, all told. Much of the information is quite rare; in fact, few libraries or institutions outside of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Library of Congress hold a complete collection. With an emphasis on communist and developing countries, this fully searchable resource is an essential tool for students and scholars at academic institutions worldwide. The comprehensive Readex digital edition of JPRS Reports, 1957-1995, is now available by request for live preview. It features an intuitive interface that includes digital full-text searching, metadata search assistance and an individual bibliographic record for each JPRS Report. In addition, JPRS Reports, 1957-1995, will be cross-searchable with the Readex digital edition of Foreign Broadcast Information Service Daily Reports, 1941-1996.
