The US Library of Congress has maintained an internet page dedicated to Country Studies. The list of countries is not complete at all and seems to reflect certain US priorities from maybe 1995 or so, when the page appeared. It's also not pure scholarship, but it can be used to get a quick, "thumbnail" overview of certain places. It's also not all that easy to stumble across, so here it is:
