The present volume of the series African Linguistic Bibliographies presents an overview of the geographical distribution and the linguistic classification of Nubian languages. This is followed by a list of periodicals and an alphabetic list of the Nubian languages, including their affiliation to the respective subbranch of the group. Furthermore it presents an exhaustive bibliography on the field of Nubian Studies.

The present bibliography demonstrates how the study of Nubian languages has flourished, especially over the past thirty years. It is an excellent compilation and and indispensable reference work for anyone working in the field. [...] The bibliography covers the whole group of Nubian languages including the texts of the medieval period. These languages are classified here according to the system of Marianne Bechhaus-Gerst which is significally different from earlier schemes of classification and which will stimulate critical discussion. The compilers consulted other scholars in the field extensively, but clearly tried to check each reference themselves and indicated wherever they were not able to do so. They have made substantial improvements on previous bibliographies, including my Place Names in the Belly of Stones (1970). [...] Angelika Jakobi and Tanja Kümmerle have a major achievement to their credit.
