Read in September, 2010
I like the review of the person who wrote it's like trying to get a drink from a fire hose. After I finished the book on August 19, 2009, I went back and made notes from the book, sort of my own edited version to help me make sense of it. I think that the editor tried to be very respectful of the original text in French so the sentence structure is closer to the French than to English, and that makes it even more challenging to understand because the book is truly packed with information, and 99.9 percent of it was all new to me. A fantastic book. If you really want to know about the history of Central Asia, this is the book.
