i bought this book thinking it was sort of a modern travelers journey walking from kashgar to yazd, but really it is about an academics many journeys to the 'stans' and iran looking at history, architecture, religion, shopping, food, travel. has nice maps, has pics, but needs more pics. no index, no bib, no endnotes (though one can glean what's needed from text). thoughtful and definite original opinions of this area and people and countries and religions and art and architecture
