Chapter Summary

The Khazar Qağanate was, indeed, one of the great powers of the age. It played an important role in Rus' history, in early Hungarian history and the history of the Caucasus. This chapter presents some idea as to what Khazarology has accomplished thus far and to perhaps suggest some future directions. Even a quick glance at modern Khazar studies will show that scholars are far from universal accord on many fundamental issues although there are also some broad grounds of agreement. Any presentation, of the achievements of Khazar studies is necessarily idiosyncratic, inevitably reflecting personal interests, languages, political and cultural education. The chapter begins with some remarks about the Hungarian School. This may strike some as an odd point of departure, but the Hungarians scholars, with their long-standing and understandable interest in the Altaic and Uralic languages of Eurasia, are a logical starting point.

Keywords: Altaic languages; Eurasia; Hungarian School; Khazar Qağanate; Khazar studies; Uralic languages
