    DescriptionIn "Europe's Steppe Frontier", acclaimed historian William H. McNeill analyzes the process whereby the thinly occupied grasslands of southeastern Europe were incorporated into three great empires: the Ottoman, the Austrian, and the Russian. McNeill benefits from a New World detachment from the bitter nationality quarrels of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which inspired but also blinded most of the historians of the region. Moreover, the unique institutional adjustments southeastern Europeans made to the frontier challenge cast indirect light upon the peculiarities of the North American frontier experience.

    Review quote
    "To say that this is the best available introduction to the international history of Eastern Europe may sound to the author a left-handed compliment....Perhaps McNeill himself will oblige us with a sequel." (Historical Journal)"
