This is the first comprehensive bibliography of temporal scholarship-research on the subject of time and the phenomenon of time itself. As the author notes in his introduction, the nature of research insights on the subject of time is difficult to comprehend within the confines of any specific discipline since relevant materials are scattered throughout the literature in numerous scholarly fields. By bringing together the most significant published works in a wide variety of disciplines, this unique compendium enables scholars and researchers to look beyond their own particular area of expertise when selecting appropriate resource materials. Throughout, the focus is on the time dimension itself as a problematic or researchable phenomenon rather than on narrow topics such as time management, time series analysis, or forecasting. Organized by discipline, the work begins with an initial chapter that lists general works on the time dimension. Nineteen chapters then list works in particular disciplines ranging from anthropology and culture to biology, economics, futures studies, history, linguistics, management studies, psychology, and more. The final chapter lists miscellaneous entries which could not be categorized into any of the specific disciplinary headings. Within each chapter, entries are arranged alphabetically by author or editor. Nearly all sources are from scholarly journals and books.

Editorial Reviews

?This is the first interdisciplinary guide to offer a bibliography of literature relating to time and the phenomenon of time, and should prove of interest to a range of college-level scholars; from those involved in literature and the arts to others interested in physical science or history. The collection enables scholars & researchers to gather and learn of material beyond their disciplines, to select materials of particular interest in a given framework or interpretative mode, and to consider the broader perspectives of the time dimension. The title is organized by discipline; from economics & geography to linguistics, literature, music, and political science. This organization acts as a subject guide as well as a discipline category, offering specific references which are easily accessed. Books, journal submissions, articles, reports, and research collections are cited from around the world, making for an important basic reference which should be considered a mainstay of any college library.?-The Midwest Book Review
