Since WWII, scholars in south-east Europe have shown an increasing interest in the 'Turkish period' of their countries' history, an interest reflected in the activities Association Internationale d'Etude du Sud-est Europeen, in the foundation of new institutes, and in the promotion of new periodicals. The object of this bibliography is to record the results of these activities and to facilitate the work of those engaged in them by listing the relevant books and articles published, mainly in the countries of south-east Europe and in Turkey, between 1945 and 1970. It includes reprints of works originally published earlier and, where a periodical established before 1945 has been searched, all the issues are covered.
Its historical scope extends from the Turkish irruptions into Asia Minor in the eleventh century to the outbreak of WWI.
The result is some 7,000 titles arranged alphabetically by the author (pp. 1-726), with German translation of the titles lesser known languages and with references also for the more substantial reviews. This is followed by a "systematischer Teil" (pp. 727-1378) where the entries reappear in more summary form, classified as appropriate by subject, by period, and by area.
