Mongols, Turks, and Others: Eurasian Nomads and the Sedentary World
A hodgepodge of essays. Patchy - for me - but the one by Gideon Shelagh I think a quiet revolution. It's about steppe identity, nomad ideology (uses those phrases) and concludes that the decision to go nomad was often a 'political strategy'. That is, on the hoof you were free.
