      The role of migration is indeed important. Andrew
      Bell-Fialkoff in his pathbreaking study of 2000
      (_The Role of Migration in the History of the Eurasian
      Steppe_ , Macmillan) provided detailed views on
      the Celts, early Germanic migrations, the Slavs and
      the Scandinavian Vikings. The nomadic migrations
      are treated in essays such as "Horses and Gold" by
      Rebecca W. Wendelken on the Scythians, the Last
      of the Iranians (the Alans and the Sarmatians),
      the Huns and the later Mongolian
      impact in Eurasia in an essay by Christopher
      Kaplonski.

      The book explored the long-tern interaction among
      three socioeconomic formations: societies based
      on sedentary agriculture, the tribes of the forst zones
      and the nomads of the Eurasian steppe. That is
      a history spanning more than 3,000 years and
      conceptually is related to Thomas Barfield, _
      The Perilous Frontier_ (1989) extended to
      Europe.
