Chapter Summary

The hardly reconcilable confrontation between sedentary agricultural communities and nomadic pastoralists is a quite well known aspect in the history of mankind. The antagonism between the two types of societies has been caused by the incompatibility between two systems of subsistence, and that antagonism manifested itself in many ways, in various parts of the world. The Carpathian-Danubian area particularly favoured the development of sedentary life, throughout the millennia, but, at various times, nomadic pastoralists of the steppes also found this area favourable to their own way of life. Besides appearing in individual volumes, the issues of the evolution of later nomad Turkic tribes in eastern and south-eastern Europe have been approached in numerous collected volumes on various topics.

Keywords: antagonism; Carpathian-Danubian area; Europe; nomad Turkic tribes; nomadic pastoralists
