Markets and States

(p.85) 3 Horizons
A Nation of Empire

Michael E. Meeker

University of California Press

This chapter analyzes the ways topography and environment consistently influenced its inhabitants to participate in the wider state and market systems, beginning with a detailed description of the topography, environment, and landscape of Turkey. It then emphasizes that, aside from the Pontic chain, the topography and environment of Turkey did not consistently function to isolate the coastal region from the outside world. The chapter also studies the total distribution of the ethnic groups in the early province of Trabzon, describes the society and state in the Pontic enclave, and discusses the economic status of these societies.

Keywords:   topography, environment, state systems, market systems, Pontic chain, ethnic groups, Pontic enclave, economic status
