The research bibliography presented here is both a ‘preliminary’ and ‘partial’ bibliography. The core focus of the bibliography is on work published in English and available internationally, although, where possible, references have been made to relevant Chinese–language sources. Despite the obvious shortcomings, however, the authors hope that, given the general dearth of bibliographies of this kind, the following list of references will supplement the articles in the body of this special issue, and will serve as a useful entry point for scholars from a wide range of disciplines wishing to research the development of English studies in contemporary China. Copyright © 2002 Blackwell Publishers Ltd.
