Chapter Summary

This section provides a list of books and journals on the subject of Karaites in science, medicine, agriculture, and industry. It is divided into the following sub-sections: general, astronomy, mathematics, Karaites and medicine, biographies of scientists, agriculture, Karaites in the tobacco industry, and horse breeding. Soon after 1783 the Karaites became actively engaged in the tobacco trade in the Russian empire. According to some estimates a few Karaite clans (Szapszal, Szyszman, Katyk, Mangubi, Duvan, Maykapar and a few others) controlled as much as 50-60% of the tobacco industry in the country. Two of the most famous Karaite tobacco factories, "Iava" and "Dukat" still exist today, even though they have not been in Karaite hands since the 1920s. The section presents the reports of the various tobacco factories owned and operated by Karaite families, located in the National Library of Russia, St. Petersburg.
