New ISAW Library Titles: November 2017

By Gabriel McKee

A list of books added to the ISAW Library in November 2017 is now available online on the ISAW Library website. The titles are sorted in the website version according to thematic topics (e.g., "East Asia" and "Ancient Near East & Asia Minor"); and within each topic, the titles are organized according to Library of Congress classification. The authors and titles of works in non-Roman languages are given in their original script. This list is also available in a Zotero library and as a browsable map created using Google Fusion Tables. [Update, February 2021: Our new map interface is now live. The November 2017 map is available here.]

The items added to the library in November come from all regions of the ancient world, but China is particularly well-represented this month: nearly a third of the 171 new items relate to East Asia. Included among these are archaeological publications on sites in Mongolia:
