Sources on the Alans: A Critical Compilation, Section 8, Uralic & Central Asian Studies [Kõva köide]

Alemany collects, classifies, translates when possible, summarizes when not, and comments on all the extant records illuminating the history of the group of nomadic tribes from the second-century BC Chinese Annals of the Han Dynasty through records of them in North Africa and Mongolia in the 14th and 15th centuries. He also includes a chronology. In the updated version, the Chinese sources have been translated directly into English rather than from the Catalan of his 1997 doctoral dissertation for the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Recull crftic de fonts per a l'estudi de la hist=ria, cultura i llengua dels alans . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Sources on the Alans now for the first time gives an exhaustive overview of all reports on the Alans written in Greek, Latin, Medieval Latin, Byzantine, Arabic, Armenian, Catalan, Georgian, Hebrew, Iranian, Mongol, Russian, Syriac and Chinese languages. From ancient up to medieval times.With an extensive Onomasticon, time tables and indices on authors and passages. A reference work in the truest sense.

"...das viel ersehnte und von nun an unentbehrliche Standarwerk jedwelcher Alanenforschung." - Virgil Ciociltan, Ungarn Jahrbuch, 2004 "There can be no doubt: this is a splendidly conceived and executed work, a major contribution not only to the history of the Alans but also to the medieval history of the Caucasus region." - Denis Sinor, JAH, 2004 "In his outstanding study, the author has presented us with a thesaurus of information that is of interest to students both of Iranian and Caucasian linguistics and of the fascinating cultures of the Eurasian steppes during the first millennium A.D." - Fridrik Thordarson, Journal of the American Oriental Society, 2002
