Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference books, articles, and other works relevant to the study of dissimulation and identity maintenance among Alevi Bulgarian Turks. The book Managing Invisibility: Dissimulation and Identity Maintenance among Alevi Bulgarian Turks focuses on the complicated invisibilities of Alevi Bulgarian Turks in Bulgaria and Turkey. Alevis as a Muslim community stand outside the mainstream Sunni and Shia sects of Islam. Even though Alevism has often been treated as a derivative of Shia belief due to Alevis' exceptional love for Ali and Ehli-Beyt, Alevism is a syncretic belief incorporating elements of Central Asian shamanism, mystical versions of Shia and Sunni Islam, Christianity and Zarathustra.

Keywords: Alevism; Asian shamanism; Shia doctrines; Sunni Islam
