Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This third, revised edition of Kevin Brook's well-received publication succeeds in elucidating controversial issues, while contextualizing the Khazar polity within the competitive ninth- to eleventh-century world. As a full exploration in English of the history and culture of the Khazars, this volume is without equal. -- Edward J. Lazzerini, Indiana University
