Summary
"For thousands of years, the geography of Eurasia has facilitated travel, conquest, and colonization by various groups, from the Huns in ancient times to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in the past century. This book brings together archaeological investigations of Eurasian regimes and revolutions ranging from the Bronze Age to the modern day, from Eastern Europe and the Caucasus in the west to the Mongolian steppe and the Korean Peninsula in the east. The authors examine a wide-ranging series of archaeological studies in order to better understand the role of politics in the history and prehistory of the region. This book reevaluates the significance of power, authority, and ideology in the emergence and transformation of ancient and modern societies in this vast continent"--
