9780711229136: Kashgar: Oasis City on China's Old Silk Road

In the 19th century, the Silk Road city of Kashgar played a central role in the strategic rivalry between Britain and Russia. Today it remains one of the most complete historical urban centers in China, and its celebrated Sunday market is one of the most vibrant in central Asia. This book honors Kashgar’s extraordinary history and character in stunning color photographs that are accompanied by informative text.

About the Author:

George Michell trained as an architect and obtained a PhD in Indian Archaeology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He has carried out research on many historical sites in India including, most recently, the ruined city of Vijayanagara in Karnataka. John Gollings is one of Australia's leading landscape photographers whose work has been widely published in books and magazines. Marika Vicziany is a professor of archeology at Monash University, Australia. Yen Hu Tsui in an archeologist in Beijing.

Review:

One of the most historic cities in Central Asia, Kashgar certainly merits a fine picture book. The city is crammed with photogenic subjects: the Uighur people, their dress, food, donkey carts, houses, mosques and cemeteries. John Gollings has done them justice. --Steppe
