Centralization amounted to a revolution, an abrupt shift from a decentralized, relatively egalitarian pattern to a centralized, hierarchical one that accentuated differences among “senior” and “junior” clans and concentrated power at the top. 36 As yet, the extent of centralization was more limited than in either China or later Turko-Mongol empires.
