Giovanni Stary is an outstan­ding specia­list in Manchu Studies. Till his recent reti­re­ment he held the chair of Manchu at the Univer­sity of Venice (Italy). Stary covered many fields, espe­cially lite­ra­ture, shama­nism, history.

He convinced scho­lars that Manchu was not just a dead language but had merits of its own and deserved to be recog­nized as an inde­pen­dent disci­p­line.
Besides focu­sing on the early history of the Manchus and Manchu indi­ge­nous lite­ra­ture, he disco­vered the lite­ra­ture of the Sibe, Manchus in Xinjiang’s Ili region, which are offi­cially regarded as a sepa­rate mino­rity in China.

Of his many publi­ca­tions a selec­tion is offered in this volume (in German, English or Italian) – they supp­le­ment his mono­graphs and comprise the latest results of his rese­arch. With index.

日前,世界著名满学家、意大利威尼斯大学斯达里教授(GIOVANNISTARY)出版了其满族研究自选集,文集由德国著名的、专注阿尔泰学研究的出版公司KLAUS SCHWARZ VERLAG出版,另一位著名满学家、德国国家图书馆满文文献部主任HARTMUT WALRAVENS先生担任该文集责任编辑。HARMUT博士在该书的序中介绍说:“以斯达里先生发表的众多著述,出版两本、三本文集都不是难事,但是他十分谦逊地亲自挑选了他认为重要的研究心得集成这一本。”在刚刚结束的(2013年7月土耳其)第56届国际阿尔泰学年会上,同行们收到了此书,文集共收入斯达里教授在满族历史、文学、萨满方面的论文20篇。
