JOSAH Contents

The index (compiled initially by Prof. Hugh Clarke and continued by Dr. Roman Rosenbaum) is the first we have attempted in the forty-two year history of the Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia. We have provided a chronological list of contents, an index to the authors and a title keyword index. We have included all the volumes of JOSAH and Austrina, the commemorative volume published in 1982 to celebrate the first twenty-five years of the Oriental Society of Australia. We have opted for the title keyword index rather than a subject index or one based on geographical region. The articles are predominantly in the areas of literature, intellectual history and philology with a very strong bias towards Chinese studies. Some of the papers deal with two or more regions of Asia. Variation in font style and designation of authors’ names reflects historical changes in the editorial policy of JOSAH.
