Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
An extensive study of the origins and culture of the mysterious Huns and the civilizations affected by their invasions. The first part of the book deals with the political history of the Huns, however, they are not a narrative. The second part of the book consists of monographs on the economy, society, warfare, art, and religion of the Huns. What distinguishes these studies from previous treatments is the extensive use of archaeological material.  This title is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press’s mission to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact. Drawing on a backlist dating to 1893, Voices Revived makes high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship accessible once again using print-on-demand technology. This title was originally published in 1973.
