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.
