This in itself is highly significant. Not only is our definition of nationalism parasitic on a prior and assumed...
Pagina 275 - Conquest of the Uyghur capital of Karabalghasun in Mongolia by the nomadic Kyrgyz in 840, without rescue from the Tang, who may have become by then intimidated by the wealthy Uyghur empire, led to further sedentarization and crystallization of Uyghur identity.
