Языки Африки: опыт построения лексикостатистической классификации. Том I: Методология. Койсанские языки
The publication is the latest in the African Studies in Russia series of compilations which contain reviews and annotations of the most important – from the point of view of editors – works of Russian Africanists over a certain period. The authors work at the Institute of African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), other institutions of the RAS, or in Russian higher education institutions. The present issue covers the years 2008 to 2009 and consists of three sections and an appendix. The first section outlines some main contents of conceptual articles on Africa published in authoritative Russian journals. The second one offers synopses of books by Russian authors on history, economics, cultural anthropology, social and political development, and international relations of African countries. The third section contains information on the most significant events in African Studies in Russia (conferences, symposia, etc.). The appendix provides a bibliography of publications on Africa published in Russia in 2008–2009. The main objective of the series of compilations, which come out every 2–3 years, is to introduce new findings of Russian Africanists to interested foreign scholars who do not speak Russian.

Could there be any connection between the Zulus and the Kazakhs as early as the 19th century? Between remote parts of Russia and South Africa? According to some archival documents, people from these two countries did know something about one another and had started to form mutual images of one another even in that epoch. And this led to contacts direct or indirect. The available evidence is fragmentary, often contradictory and sometimes difficult to interpret. But it is there.
