Missing Asia in "The Naitonalism Project"

Most of our discussions here as well as in class are related to nationalism and nation-building. I am interested in theories and analyses of nationalism and identities, and I recently found a useful website through H-Net Network on Naitonalism Studies. It might interest you for future reference:

The Nationalism Project

It has brief summaries of major theoretical works, bookreviews, bibliographies... very useful. HOWEVER!!! On their "Subject Bibliographies" page in which they sort out bibliographies by region, THERE IS NO ASIA. There are "Scotland," "Ukraine," "Northern Ireland" but no Korea or China or Japan or any Southeast Asian countries. This is weird especially considering the fact that Benedict Anderson is an Indonesia specialist. Someone (or we?!) should compile one for them.
