Abstract: The main result of this paper is to complete Misiurewicz's characterization of the set of periods of a continuous map $ f$ of the circle with degree one (which depends on the rotation interval of $ f$). As a corollary we obtain a kind of perturbation theorem for maps of the circle of degree one, and a new algorithm to compute the set of periods when the rotation interval is known.

Also, for maps of degree one which have a fixed point, we describe the relationship between the characterizations of the set of periods of Misiurewicz and Block.
