Deals with antisemitic propaganda in the late Soviet and post-Soviet periods, when the term "Khazars" was used as a euphemism for Jews. Explores the image of the Jewish Khazars in the rhetoric and worldview of contemporary Russian nationalists and their ethnocentric myths of the past and the "Russian idea." Clarifies these antisemites' view of a world Jewish conspiracy, explaining the resort to the Khazars as symbols of supposed Jewish domination of Russia from the time of Kievan Rus through the epoch of the Russian Revolution and Bolshevik dictatorship (with Stalin seen as a pawn of the Jew Kaganovich) until the breakup of the Soviet Union - the Jews are blamed for all these calamities. The "Khazar version" of Russian history was touted by "patriotic" nationalists in periodicals, by such archaeologists as Gumilev, and by nationalistic writers of science fiction and belles lettres. Some of these writers highlighted the role of the Khazars in subjugating the Slavs; others stressed world Zionism as a new Khazar plot. These ideas even penetrated the Russian educational system. The myth of the Khazars also attracted Ukrainian nationalists (pp. 148-159).

The Khazars were one of the most important Turkic peoples in European history, dominating vast areas of southeastern Europe and the western reaches of the Central Asian steppes from the 4th to the 11th centuries AD. They were also unique in that their aristocratic and military elites converted to Judaism, creating what would be territorially the largest Jewish-ruled state in world history. They became significant allies of the Byzantine Empire, blocking the advance of Islam north of the Caucasus Mountains for several hundred years. They also achieved a remarkable level of metal-working technology, and their military elite wore forms of iron plate armour that would not be seen in Western Europe until the 14th century. The Khazar state provided the foundations upon which medieval Russia and modern Ukraine were built. Fully illustrated with detailed colour plates, this is a fascinating study into the armies, organisation, armour, weapons and fortifications of the Khazars.

The Jews of Khazaria chronicles the history of the Khazars, a people who, in the early Middle Ages, founded a large empire in eastern Europe (located in present-day Ukraine and Russia). The Khazars played a pivotal role in world history. Khazaria was one of the largest-sized political formations of its time, an economic and cultural superpower connected to several important trade routes. It was especially notable for its religious tolerance, and in the 9th century, a large portion of the royal family converted to Judaism. Many of the nobles and commoners did likewise shortly thereafter. After their conversion, the Khazars were ruled by a succession of Jewish kings that began to adopt the hallmarks of Jewish civilization, including the Torah and Talmud, the Hebrew script, and the observance of Jewish holidays. In this thoroughly revised edition of a modern classic, The Jews of Khazaria explores many exciting new discoveries about the Khazars' religious life, economy, military, government, and culture. It builds upon new studies of the Khazars, evaluating and incorporating recent theories, along with new documentary and archaeological findings. The book gives a comprehensive accounting of the cities, towns, and fortresses of Khazaria, and features a timeline summarizing key events in Khazar history.
