"...An extremely stimulating work... draws attention to a number of facts and events which, until now, remained more or less unnoticed in scholarly literature. The author introduces new viewpoints into traditional historiography... which should contribute to a deeper understanding of relations among substantial features of Russian history." - Professor K. V. Maly, Charles University, Prague - "Edgar Knobloch introduces the reader to a dimension of Russian history that is both fascinating and relatively unknown - how the Central Asian side of Russia, with its steppe frontier, has had such a profound influence on Russian civilisation in general." - Professor Norman Stone "You have to admire Edgar Knobloch: his unblinking focus, his unflagging industry, his undeniable erudition, his trenchant opinions, his indifference to academic fashions. Most other scholars will hate this unashamedly tendentious book - but it is the most eloquent statement yet of the case for classifying Russian history apart from that of the rest of Europe. Russia's continued self-distancing from the EU will ensure that Dr Knobloch attracts attention, even where he does not command assent. - Professor Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, Tufts University"
