Study Guide for Golden, "The World of the Steppes"

  • Peter Golden, who studied Turkish and Turkic history at Columbia University in the 1960s, teaches at Rutgers University, where he recently served as Chairperson of the History Department.
  • This chapter comes from his recent "survey" of the history of the Turkic peoples. While it is a "survey", it uncharacteristically also includes several interesting and novel "theses."
