The Appearance of Agrarian Property in the Nomadic Society in Central Asia in the 18th and the First Half of the 19th Centuries


The main aim of the research is to analyse the process of transformation of the nomadic Kazakh society in the 18th Century and the first half of the 19th Centuries. Based on the archival materials, the authors concluded that in the period under study, actual private ownership of pastures was emerging in the nomadic Kazakh society.
