Book Information


Title: A Historical-Etymological Dictionary of Pre-Russian Habitation Names of the Crimea
Written By: H. Jankowski
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies

This dictionary, the first of its kind in Turkological studies, will prove
to be an invaluable research tool for those studying the Crimea, Ukraine,
as well as Eurasian Nomadism. It is the result of year-long painstaking
research into the etymology of Crimean pre-Russian habitation names,
providing insight into the Turkic, Greek, Caucasian place-names in a
comparative context, as well as the histories of these cities, towns and
villages themselves. The dictionary contains approximately 1,500 entries,
preceded by an introduction with notes on the history of the Crimea and the
structure of habitation names. For the reader’s convenience, many entries
are classified in indices which follow the main part of the book.
Additionally, three detailed primary source maps, separately indexed, are
appended to the dictionary, as well as a map showing the administration
network of the Crimea at the end of the Crimean Tatar Khanate.
