With an increased emphasis on research on the important grain legume crop of chickpea, there is a need for a comprehensive listing of chickpea literature. Bibliographies prepared by the ICAR (I960), Regional Pulse Improvement Project of USDA (1966-1970), and L.J.G. van der Maesen (1972) have been the basic resource works on chickpea; this effort was undertaken to update the available bibliographic works and to provide wider coverage of the world literature. Assistance was obtained from the U.S.D.A. Library, Commonwealth Bureau of Plant Breeding, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Publications and Information Directorate (Wealth of India Section), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (New Delhi), and the ICRISAT Library in compiling and checking the references. This bibliography covers the years 1930- 1974. Also included is all traceable literature prior to this period. The coverage includes 22 languages. Foreign titles are presented only in the English translation. Where titles are of common knowledge in a particular field, the original language was kept in order to avoid confusion, for example some taxonomical works in Latin. A complete list of all languages used has been given at the end. A list of periodical abbreviations along with language and country of publication precedes the bibliography for identification of periodicals used in the citations. The World List of Scientific Periodicals, Fourth Edition, Butterworths, London,  was used extensively while preparing the periodical bbreviations.
