"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

This is a reference of various books (and some journal articles) about Albania and the Albanian people; their history, language, origin, culture, literature, etc. The publication dates range from the 17th century to present times. Most of them are in English, but there are also a few books in French, German, Italian, and Albanian. All of them are fully accessible online, both for reading and downloading (public domain books and articles), and accompanying links are given in the reference to access each book. A lot of the books also have a great deal of historical and cultural information about other countries/peoples of the Balkans/Europe.Reference librash dhe artikujsh historike mbi Shqiperine dhe shqiptaret. Te gjitha materialet mund te lexohen te plota ne internet ose te shkarkohen ne kompjuter.
