Review:

'[The contributions] collectively provide such a thorough identification and analysis of the source base available for understanding the complex realities of Khazar history that they comprise nothing less than a reference work of encyclopedic content and utility. Scholars will surely be thankful for these essays, but those who teach in academia will also value them for what they can bring to classroom discussions by making available to students such accessible information.' Edward J. Lazzerini in Journal of Asian History, 43.2

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This volume, a product of international collaboration, presents readers with the state of the field in Khazar Studies. The Khazar Empire (ca. 650 - ca. 965-969), one of the largest states of medieval Eurasia, extended from the Middle Volga lands in the north to the Northern Caucasus and Crimea in the south and from the Ukrainians steppelands to the western borders of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in the east. Turkic in origin, it played a key role in the history of the peoples of Rus , medieval Hungary and the Caucasus.
