Conflicts in Eurasia

The key to finding a workable topic may be finding out what already has been written about Eurasia; you probably do not want to be the first person to explore a particular topic. The first three categories below -- "News Sites," "Specialized Encyclopedias,"and "Country Profiles" -- may be the best places to begin.

News Sites

Sources useful for monitoring developments in countries and regions.

Country Profiles

Narrative and statistical overviews of countries. Note that Europa World also has excellent regional overviews.

Specialized Encyclopedias

Very useful for overviews of topics.


Access to online regional and country maps.

Finding Books

Books at W&L and elsewhere.

Finding Articles

Indexes to articles in journals, magazines, and newspapers, as well as other materials.
