About the section... The materials of the section Back to the main page

This section was founded in 1993, in order to produce the "Encyclopedia of Populated Areas of the Republic of Adygeia and of Auls in Shapsugiia and in the Uspenskii Region of Krasnodar Krai.".

This work is a universal encyclopedia. It includes a wide range of material and a large number of articles. Scholars, specialists in various fields and representatives of government bodies of the Republic of Adygeia are taking part in its preparation.

The Section of Common Issues takes the opportunity to appeal to those interested and able, including Adyg communities in the diaspora, to assist in the realization of this comprehensive and timely project.
