THIS IS A 350 PAGE BOOK BY A DISTINGUISHED AUTHOR ON THE AREA OF CENTRAL ASIA FROM WHICH INVASIONS INTO EUROPE AND THE NEAR EAST OCCURRED UNDER SELJUK, OTTOMAN AND MONGOL TRIBES AT VARIOUS TIMES IN HISTORY. THE BOOK HAS SEVERAL MAPS. THERE IS NO DUST JACKET BUT THE BOOK IS SOLID AND UNMARKED
Great Read and answers a lot of theological questions. Will be re-read and keeping in my library.
The Heartland covers a period of time spanning over a thousand years, specifically covering the many migrations from the steppes, the taiga, from western China to the Persian plateau. It links the people and the history of these regions in a most eye opening way. There is coverage of how these migration/invasions impacted the Roman Empire, the Seleucid Empire; where the Arabs came from, and all the cultual collisions between the Mongols, The Chinese, The Arabs, The early empires Of India......all with pertinent dates and names.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in this part of the world covering this time period. The book was written in the 70's, but the scholarship is still sound. This book is an easy read. and moves along quickly.
