The Turks in World History, Paperback / softback Book

The Turks in World History Paperback / softback

Description

Beginning in Inner Asia two thousand years ago, the Turks have migrated and expanded to form today's Turkish Republic, five post-Soviet republics, other societies across Eurasia, and a global diaspora.

For the first time in a single, accessible volume, this book traces the Turkic peoples' trajectory from steppe, to empire, to nation-state.

Cultural, economic, social, and political history unite in these pages to illuminate the projection of Turkic identity acrossspace and time and the profound transformations marked successively by the Turks' entry into Islam and into modernity.
