A comprehensive introduction to "one of the world 's best kept secrets. " Fringed by the two great rivers of Central Asia, the Oxus and the Jaxartes, Tajikistan can boast not only of breathtaking mountain scenery, but also of 3,000 years of history. The land where Alexander the Great fought desperately against the Scythian nomads, his most formidable adversaries, Tajikistan is an ancient cradle of Persian culture. Originally, it was the home of the Sogdians, the famous trading peoples of the Silk Road; eventually this country was at the heart of the 19th century 'Great Game ', a place of contention for the adventurers and spies of Britain and Imperial Russia. Now recovering from the misfortunes of the 20th century--the travails of Soviet rule and several years of civil war--it is able to offer visitors not only its legacies of cultural and ethnic diversity, but also unparalleled opportunities for adventure. 100 color photos, 13 maps & diagrams. Printed Pages: 700.
