Veritas Books: The Thirteenth Tribe Khazar Empire A.Koestler

Description

The Ancient Khazar Empire of Eastern Europe (became converted to Judaism in the 7th century), Khazaria was finally wiped out by the forces of Genghis Khan, but evidence indicates, that the Khazars themselves migrated to Poland and formed the cradle of Western Jewry ...

To the general reader the Khazars, who flourished from the seventh to the eleventh century, may seem infinitely remote today. Yet they have a close and unexpected bearing on our world, which emerges as Arthur Koestler recounts the fascinating history of the ancient Khazar Empire, a major but almost forgotten power in Eastern Europe, at about the time that Charlemagne was Emperor in the West. The Khazars' sway extended from the Black Sea to the Caspian, from the Caucasus Mountains to the Volga River, and they were instrumental in stopping the Muslim onslaught against Byzantium, the eastern jaw of the gigantic pincer movement, that in the West swept across northern Africa and into Spain.

Thereafter the Khazars found themselves in a precarious position between the two major world powers: the Eastern Roman Empire in Byzantium and the triumphant followers of Mohammed. As Mr. Koestler points out, the Khazars were the Third World of their day, and they chose a surprising method of resisting both the Western pressure to become Christian and the Eastern to adopt Islam. Rejecting both, they converted to Judaism.
