Realizing that a knowledge of the Scythians and the Huns is necessary for an adequate understanding of the countries of eastern Europe and the Near East, McGovern has written a comprehensive survey of all that is known--racial, social, and cultural as well as political--regarding the inhabitants of central Asia, from the earliest times (c. 3000 B.C.) down to the sixth century A.D.
