Here is a link to Matsurra & Yamane's Biology of the Vespine wasps. This is an english translation of the 1984 of their former work entitled Comparative Ethology of the vespinae Wasps which was available only in Japanese. This is great review of the social vespines of Japan. A wide variety of topics are covered along with a checklist of the species and subspecies of Vespinae of the world.
