    Siberia has had an interesting history, quite distinct from that of Russia.

  • Studying Islam in the Soviet Unionby Michael Kemper

    Amsterdam University Press 2009; US$ 11.50

    Ons beeld van de islam in de Sovjet-Unie is de laatste drie decennia erg veranderd. Tijdens de periode van de Koude oorlog bekeken Westelijke waarnemers hoofdzakelijk of de islam - en vooral soefi broederschap ? een politieke en militaire bedreiging zouden kunnen vormen voor de heerschappij van Moskou in Centraal Azië en de Kaukasus. Dit in tegenstelling... more...

    This book examines the Russian/Soviet intellectual tradition of Oriental and Islamic studies, which comprised a rich body of knowledge especially on Central Asia and the Caucasus.

  • In Search of Kazakhstanby Christopher Robbins

    Profile Books 2012; US$ 11.98

    The only thing most people know about Kazakhstan is that it is homeland to Borat - and he isn't even real. Actually this vast place - the last unknown inhabited country in the world - is far more surprising and entertaining. For one thing, it is as varied as Europe, combining stupendous wealth, grinding poverty, exotic traditions and a mad dash for... more...

  • A Carpet Ride to Khivaby Christopher Alexander

    Icon Books 2010; US$ 11.65

    Chris Alexander originally travelled to Khiva, a remote walled city in Uzbekistan on the route of the ancient Silk Road, to write a guidebook. But he stayed, mesmerized by a world of silk and forgotten 15th-century carpet designs – discovering indigo blue, madder red, pomegranate gold and the subtle shades of life in a desert oasis.  ... more...

  • Asiatic Russiaby Tomohiko Uyama

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    Although the Russian Empire has traditionally been viewed as a European borderland, most of its territory was actually situated in Asia. Imperial power was huge but often suffered from a lack of enough information and resources to rule its culturally diverse subjects, and asymmetric relations between state and society combined with flexible strategies... more...
