Kennedy, James R., Jr.; And Others (1972). Guide to Reference Sources on Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and Russia and East Europe: Selected and Annotated. This selected annotated bibliography of reference sources is designed to help college students prepare for the future by identifying critical sources on the societies and cultures of most of the world's people who have long been neglected in higher education. Encyclopedias, handbooks, and yearbooks are listed first under each area. Next are the general bibliographies, many of which cite the most important books and articles on an area and arrange them under disciplines generally taught in the liberal arts curriculum. Finally, more specialized sources are listed, arranged primarily by discipline. The guide has also been prepared with the needs of college libraries in mind. Some of the sources are recommended for all libraries, while others are recommended only for libraries serving area studies programs or for institutions when a particular course is offered in the subject or region. By scanning the last sentence or two of each entry, a librarian can quickly decide whether to consider buying a source. Sources were selected on the basis of the following criteria: 1) Usefulness for college courses on non-western areas; 2) Recency; 3) Languages most commonly taught in this country; and 4) Geographical coverage.

Folkerts, Jean Lange (1982). Report on the Russians: An Analysis of the Controversy Surrounding William Lindsay White's 1945 Account of Russia. During the summer of 1944, journalist William Lindsay White accompanied Eric Johnston, president of the United States Chamber of Commerce, to the Soviet Union. Early the next year White published an account of the trip, "Report on the Russians," which made the best seller lists, but which pleased few individuals and attracted a great deal of criticism. Much of the criticism accused White of being biased in his observations of the Russians, unfairly emphasizing poverty during wartime, and commenting unfavorably about industrial development under a communist regime. However, critics virtually ignored four major stories he released–stories which at that time had not been presented to the public eye but which in later years were acknowledged to be highly significant accounts.  White's account and criticism raises issues of media objectivity and the role of the reporter during wartime. The focus on ideology rather than on events represented a desire for Americans to protect their national interests and to create an ideological consistency between the two great powers. Correspondents were trying to secure Russian trust and support in hope of breaking down tight censorship controls. There was also a need to promote Russian-American cooperation for world peace. Bill White's experience is a documentation of the strength of public opinion in volatile times and a reminder that the role of the press is not to promote ideological consistency or schism, nor to aid in government manipulation, but to clarify events and issues.

The chapter on programs and organizations serving the handicapped focuses on five special schools for children with various handicaps as well as special institutes and centers.
