This handbook, prepared by the Far Eastern and Russian
Institute of the University of Washington under contract to the Human Relations Area Files,
consists of a series of articles prepared by area specialists covering a wide range of
topics. Although the material has been prepared from secondary sources, coverage of subject
matter is thorough and exacting. The source is divided into three major divisions dealing
each in its turn with the sociological, political and economic aspects of Outer Mongolian
culture and society from early historic times up to 1956. The table of contents in vol. 1
pp. vii-xi, will help to orient the researcher to the wide spectrum of cultural data to be
found in each of the major divisions. It is interesting to note that in contrast to Inner
Mongolia in which Chinese acculturative influences are particularly strong, Outer Mongolia,
on the other hand leans heavily towards the Soviet Union.
