Chapter Summary

The strategies aimed at throwing aside the Otherness, if one wants to follow the words of Boyan Manchev, &t;always have as their preliminary premise the homogenizing and making of the Otherness visible&t;. In fact, it was already during the Early Middle Ages, when the nomads as well as the sedentary societies of Eurasia had made efforts not to throw the Other totally aside, because one and the same idea came to both their minds, namely that they had always been mutually dependent on each other in spheres such as politics, economy, and identity. One of the most revealing examples can be taken from the Bulgar-Byzantine, as well as Uighur-Chinese relations.
