Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names and terms that are mentioned in the book The World of the Khazars: New Perspectives Selected Papers from the Jerusalem 1999 International Khazar Colloquium hosted by the Ben Zvi Institute. The Khazar Empire, one of the largest states of medieval Eurasia, extended from the Middle Volga lands in the north to the Northern Caucasus and Crimea in the south and from the Ukrainians steppe lands in the west to the western borders of present day Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in the east. Its determinant component was Turkic in origin and it must be understood within the context of medieval Eurasian, Turkic, nomad-based states. It played a key role in the history of the peoples of Rus', medieval Hungary and the Caucasus and had an impact on the whole of Eastern-Northeastern Europe, the Balkans and the Islamic Middle East.
