COLORS OF THE SILK ROAD
With Stories from Central Asia

“Deliberately broad “Central Asia” is really the “Inner Asia” that extends from the Caucasus to Mongolia and at least western China and in the south to northern Pakistan.   Such a large region naturally encompasses a huge variation in geography, from some of the driest desert regions on earth to the most forbidding (and beautiful) glacier-shrouded peaks.  The sweep of the region’s cultural history is encapsulated in part in the history of the “Silk Road,” . . . . not to mention the contemporary affairs , especially insofar as they connect with the changes brought about by the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991.”
