Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts 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. The ethnic Turks of Bulgaria were transformed into 'Bulgarian Turks' as a minority community in Bulgaria and an external kin-nation to Turks in Anatolia, following Bulgaria's de facto independence from Ottoman rule in 1878. The book contributes to the literature on dissimulation by analyzing its impact on intergroup distinctions and boundaries.

Keywords: Alevi Bulgarian Turks; Ottoman rule; Sunnism
