This second collection of studies by Peter Golden continues his explorations of the Türk Empire (mid-sixth to mid-eighth centuries), the stateless polities that followed its collapse, and of the Khazar Qaghanate (mid-seventh century to ca. 965-969), its imperial successor state in the western Eurasian steppes. Examined here are issues relating to the rise of the Türks, slavery and its role in Turkic nomadic societies, and the cultural interactions between Turkic nomads and neighbouring societies, notably Kievan Rus', Georgia and the Islamic world.
