Also refer to the Books about the History of Belarus Web page, and especially Belarus: At a Crossroads in History, for broader discussions. Most books about the history of Belarus include significant information about Mensk.

Note:: The current "correct" spelling of the name of the capital of Belarus is no less confusing than the other very confusing issues regarding language and Belarus. The spelling most often used today, Minsk, is a Russified spelling of the historical Belarusian name Mensk. Indicating the proper pronunciation in English is difficult (especially since there are so many kinds of English), and the spelling Miensk is sometimes used as well.
