About This Item

Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick: 1970. Softcover. Brand new book. While the early history of the steppe nomads is shrouded in obscurity, this obscurity lifts somewhat after their contact with cultures possessing written histories. But even when information about them becomes relatively more plentiful, linguistic ocmplexities makes its interpretation extremely difficult. Thus while the number of specialized studies devoted to them is impressive, general works embracing the many disciplines involved, or syntheses on a grand scale encompassing the sprawlinig history of the these peoples, are exceedingly scarce. Among these very few, The Empire of the Steppes is outstanding. The aim of this first English-language edition has been to make available a major work useful to the general reader as well as to the specialist, above all an edition which retrains the majestic sweep and grandeur, as well as the overriding intellectual grasp of Grousset's original. Translated into English from the French by Naomi Walford. Includes an Index. ISBN: 0813513049.
