This bibliography provides the basis for a research survey on the political, ideological, economic, and cultural aspects of the Mossi states. As such, it focuses on historical writings pertaining to the « precolonial » history of the Mossi states, particularly those of Ouagadougou, Tenkodogo and Yatenga, as well as their satellite states. I have included a number of references that pertain to the history of Mamprusi, Dagomba states, and the so-called « stateless societies », in so far as they inform an understanding of historical processes that marked the institutional development of the Mossi states.

The first section covers text publications on Mossi history, social organization and society, the second is on arts and literature, the third on Moore language and linguistics, and the fourth is a short list of important sound and video recordings.
