National Bureau of Asian Research
The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that provides independent research about US relations with Asia. Started in 1989, it contracts with specialists to conduct much of its research on topics including political, economic, energy, and health issues. This independent research is published in one of NBR's four publications: Strategic Asia, Asia Policy, NBR Analysis, or NBR Reports. Some articles may be viewed and downloaded in PDF for free, whereas others are offered as free previews with the option to purchase.
