Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of figures as illustration for this book The Kazakhs: Children of the Steppes. Although Kazakhs were little known to the outside world until relatively recently, their name has been on European tongues at the very least since the eighteenth century, albeit in distorted form. The Cossacks were taken into the service of the Russian Empire and it is from here that they became known to the West. They spoke in a Russian dialect and professed Christianity. The book focuses on the Kazakh people who today make up over half the population of some 15 million.

Keywords: Christianity; European; Kazakhs
