Eugene Schuyler, who was Secretary of the American Legation at St. Petersburgh, travelled extensively in Russian Central Asia and provides in this monumental work an exceptionally detailed description of the regions through which he travelled. He gives accounts of the economic, political and religious and social conditions, as well as detailed description of places of worship, habits of dress and local languages. "The chief aim of my journey in Central Asia was to study the political and social condition of the regions which had been recently annexed by Russia, as well as to compare the state of the inhabitants under Russian rule with that of those still living under the despotism of the Khans." Printed Pages: 896 with numerous b/w illustrations and a map.
