The Aral Region and Geopolitical Agenda of the Early Qongrats

The Aral Region and Geopolitical Agenda of the Early Qongrats The essay seeks to consider how the region of the Aral Sea initially functioned as a frontier zone and then, over time, as a newly-incorporated territory within the Khanate of Khiva in Khoresm, and how the dynasty of recently enthroned Qongrat rulers set about integrating the Aral region into their polity. In doing so, I hope to be able to show how Muḥammad Raḥīm Khān i, the Qongrat (r. 1806-25) shaped his geopolitical agenda according to the new spatial organization of his realm, and how the early 19th-century Khanate of Khiva was transformed by this newly configured balance between the settled and the nomadic worlds. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Eurasian Studies Brill

Abstract

The essay seeks to consider how the region of the Aral Sea initially functioned as a frontier zone and then, over time, as a newly-incorporated territory within the Khanate of Khiva in Khoresm, and how the dynasty of recently enthroned Qongrat rulers set about integrating the Aral region into their polity. In doing so, I hope to be able to show how Muḥammad Raḥīm Khān i, the Qongrat (r. 1806-25) shaped his geopolitical agenda according to the new spatial organization of his realm, and how the early 19th-century Khanate of Khiva was transformed by this newly configured balance between the settled and the nomadic worlds.
