Anyone familiar with the authors first book Where Two Worlds Met (1992) must look forward to reading this new volume, which is a comprehensive study of Moscows relations with the steppe nomads from the emergence of a Russian empire until the closing of the frontier 300 years later. He will not be disappointed. In the authors own words, this book is about the transformation of a dangerous frontier into a part of the empire and of its peoples into subjects. Certainly more controversial is his determination to show that Russia was no less a colonial empire than any of the other western powers.
