The Code Of Leke Dukagjini

£34.99

Product description

The Code Of Leke Dukagjini (Kanuni i Leke Dukagjin).
Written by Shtjefen Gjecov.
Translated by Leonard Fox.

Published by Gjonlekaj Publishing Co. in 1989.
Hardback with paper dust jacket. Bound in red cloth boards with gilt lettering. Boards are unmarked. Dust jacket has minor shelf wear and crease on the bottom left front corner. Pages clean and unmarked. With frontspiece and loose colour map of the region.

From foreword. "The laws and customs included in the Kanun - or code - of Leke Dukagjini evolved over a period of many centuries, both before and after the lifetime of the historical personage to whom they are traditionally ascribed. Some may have actually originated among the Illyrians, the ancestors of the Albanians, while it is possible that others date back to remote antiquity - to a period before the mass migrations of the Indo-Europeans. Transmitted orally for generations, the laws of the Kanun served for more than five centuries as the foundation of social behaviour and self-government for the clans of Northern Albania, even while the region was nominally under Turkish rule. The importance of the Kanun in the history of the Albanian people can scarcely be overestimated, and its precepts continue to exercise a very significant influence on Albanians living in Albania and Kosovo, as well as in other countries to which Albanians have emigrated."
