Book Information

   

Title: Sources on the Alans
Subtitle: A Critical Compilation
Written By: A. Alemany
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=9275
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies
Description:

The first exhaustive key to the sources to, and the proper names of the
Alans. The scattered nature of sources and their dispersion in time, space
and intermediary languages may explain the lack of a true comprehensive
guide to this important ancient people, a nomadic tribe of Iranian stock,
living from one end of the Eurasian steppes to the other. Documents from
ancient up to medieval times regularly make, in a wide variety of
languages, mention of the Alans.

With his Sources on the Alans Agustí Alemany now provides us for the first
time with a reliable and exhaustive handbook by collecting, classifying,
translating (or summarizing) all reports on the Alans written in Greek,
Latin, Medieval Latin, Byzantine, Arabic, Armenian, Catalan, Georgian,
Hebrew, Iranian, Mongol, Russian, Syriac and Chinese languages.
The volume will also be frequently used as an Onomasticon. With time tables
and indices on authors and passages. A reference work in the truest sense.
