I would add to Worden's note that the e-text of the Country Studies works are also available on the world wide web, which is a wonderful resource. GO: http://lcweb2.loc.gov/frd/cs/cshome.html

I am not so positive about content as is Mr. Worden; I teach East and Southeast Asian history, and there the country studies tend to be less satisfactory when the history of, say, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, touches upon American policy. The United States' role is often extremely vague in "local" events. But all in all they are a very useful resource for some areas about which little is easily available. And, of course, they are fully searchable electronically.
