Reviews

Written with engrossing flair... Hopkirk tells the story well, playing up the romance and glamour while never losing sight of the overarching historical picture."--Andrew Leonard, San Francisco Chronicle


"Those who enjoy vividly told tales of derring-do and seek a clear understanding of the history of the emerging central Asian countries will find this a glorious book." --Byron Farwell, The New York Times Book Review
