Introduction

 The history of the Albanian people may be understood rightly only if an overall approach is done, in continuation and by self-criticism, as it has developed. The political history is only one side of the history of Albanians. Accordingly, the result of general history, and not of political history only, are of interest. Compactness, continuation and authenticity of the history of Albanians are in general characteristics.
