This particular book is a collaboration focused on Arvanites.More info: Arvanites (, Arvanitika: Arb resh or b ) are a population group in Greece who traditionally speak Arvanitika, a dialect of the Albanian language. They settled in Greece during the late Middle Ages and were the dominant population element of some regions of the Peloponnese and Attica until the 19th century.They call themselves Arvanites (in Greek) and Arb ror (in their language); but in Northwestern Greece, in their language, they use the term Shqiptar (the same used by Albanians of Albania), a term strongly disliked by the other Arvanites, who also resent being called Albanians. Arvanites today self-identify as Greeks as the result of a process of assimilation. Arvanitika is in a state of attrition due to language shift towards Greek and large-scale internal migration to the cities and subsequent intermingling of the population during the 20th century.
