Beschreibung

Daniel Metcalfe journeys through the five 'stans, as well as Pakistan and Afghanistan, and brings to life the brilliant human tapestry they comprise - uniquely shaped by the immigrants, deportees and conquerors that have settled there. Revealing a Central Asia that is far removed from the home of Borat or the land of international terrorism, Metcalfe unlocks the secrets of this troubled region, glorying in its diversity and also lamenting the economic and cultural changes that threaten to eradicate some of its peoples...

Vorwort
Exploring his life-long fascination with the Silk Road, Daniel Metcalfe travels alone through remote regions of Central Asia in search of some of its lost peoples.

Autorentext
Daniel Metcalfe left Oxford University in 2002 with a degree in Classics. Long fascinated by Central Asia, he taught himself Persian and headed to Iran and the steppes. An energetic traveller, Metcalfe - who also speaks Russian, Swedish and Portuguese - has journeyed extensively throughout Asia, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus.

'Fresh, witty and full of quirky detail...the book is also a serious, sometimes moving account of environmental degradation, political repression and social isolation' Financial Times

'Metcalfe's book has many virtues, the greatest of which are courage and a keen eye for detail, plus an ability to convey the essence of a place through the briefest of anecdotes' The Independent

'Metcalfe writes with sensitivity and great flair ... I was totally absorbed' Paddy Ashdown
