Folklore: critical concepts in literary and cultural studies
edited by Alan Dundes
New York: Routledge, 2005.
The impetus for the publication of these four volumes is to provide a compact collection of hard-to-obtain texts that have been influential to the development of international folkloristics. Professor Dundes remarked in the introduction that "It is my fervent hope that this assemblage of papers on folklore will facilitate the serious study of folklore at smaller educational institutions with limited library resources as well as in colleges and universities outside of the English-speaking world."

National minorities in Europe: handbook
by Christoph Pan and Beate Sibylle Pfeil
Vienna: W. Braumuller, 2003
In its main section, the handbook, which has been conceived as a
reference work, answers questions about the continued existence, size,
and areas of settlement of the national minorities in the individual
states of Europe. Supplementary overviews are dedicated to the size,
linguistic classification, and national categorization of the
eighty-seven peoples of Europe, the languages of Europe, or the size
categories of the national minorities of Europe. In addition, the
handbook deals with the requirements of modern protection of minorities
that are anchored in democracy and the rule of law, including autonomy,
as well as the development of a European system of minority protection
whose central documents are found in the appendix.
