    What ethnicity were Cossacks? Were they Turks, Slavs, something in between?

      They was a debate about it: some people with cossack's ancestry claim to be slavic sub-ethnos of South Russia and Ukraine, historians think that they were frontier settlers and bandits, serving the crowns of Russia, PLC and Osman as mercenaries, as diverse group of many nation's people.
      They are in-between, I talk without any contempt. Escaped Russian serf and Khazar nomad - they will be cossacks without ethnic division. Eventually, they are formed nation-group on the Wild Field's territory, formed from the people settled here (IMHO)

    That's just typical Slav(e) barbarism. SlavBlack folk are born psychopaths.

      It's not a barbarism, it's common sense for people in power to not become estranged to their people. Also this story is partially just a cool myth, but I like it

    Also Razin is still recognised as a people's hero, because of his doings. He led the big revolt against the noble's tyranny, but lost and died horryphic but heroic death, dismembered in Moscow.
    His history is the hostory of common Russian man, that gave a middle finger about Kremiln's bullshittery ages ago. Cossack means "freeman", so I miss them as that. Now they are just a part of Russia and Ukraine's military folklore and a bunch of larpers

    Any book recommendations on the Cossacks? Preferably in English.

      "With Fire and Sword" (historical novel of Henryk Sienkiewicz, polish writer, from their national perspective), Tolstoy's novel "The Cossacks", and if you interested in their new history, read "And Quite Flows the Don" of Michail Sholockov about their doings in Russian Revolution.

      Also there like "Taras Bulba" of Nicolay Gogol, but I'm not sure if it was translated to English. Taras Shevchenko, Ukrainian greatest poet, writed about them too.

    River pirates, traders, farmers - there were a diverse group of them. Their form of governing - Sich, armed people's parliament - was the one of first democratic institutions among Slavs, as Novgorodian republic or PLC's parliament, but, in difference, was built on common folk's ground.

    Quiet Flows the Don is about Russian/Don Cossacks. Taras Bulba is about Ukrainian/Zaporozhia Cossacks. Cossack is more of a social status of freeman frontier-dweller who fights hunts fishes and produces grain. However due the no-rights serfdom of the Muscowite majority Don Cossacks claimed being separate people. There are also Terek Cossacks, Siberian Cossacks, Volga Cossacks but these are all Don (russian) cossacks. except for Kuban cossacks, they are mostly Ukrainian
