Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Similar to the classical North American frontier territory, both the East European steppe and the Great Hungarian Plain are peripheral zones. In the present paper an attempt is made to define the concepts of frontier and periphery. Which were the frontier territories in the past, and which are they nowadays ? The unique development of the Great Hungarian Plain has been studied in depth by Hungarian experts of historical and urban geography. The essay presents the evolution of the frontier zone of the East European - i.e. Ukrainian - steppe from the 16th through 20th centuries. The research results on the Great Hungarian Plain are applied to understand the development of the Ukrainian steppe territory as a marginal zone. - (AM)
