About this item

Shukurov examines the final period in the history of the Byzantine Empire, which ended with its defeat at the hands of Turkish invaders. In order to understand why Byzantium was unable to withstand the Turkic invasion, he looks at how the encounter with the alien Turkic culture affected Byzantine civilization and what the specific features of the Turkic invasion were that made the Turks victorious. He covers the Byzantine classification of the Turks, Byzantine onomastics: problems of method, the "Persians" and the "Scythians," the Byzantine Turks in the Balkans, the noble lineages, assimilation tools, Asians in the Byzantine Pontes, and "Turkophonia" in Byzantium.
