A well written and fascinating account of intrigue, skullduggery and barbarism in a part of the world still in the grip of despots and tyrants.
This and the Great Game by the same author I thoroughly recommend to those interested in the detail of this place and time.
For anyone interested in Xinjiang (Sinkiang, Chinese/Eastern Turkestan) this is also an interesting book and underlines why China is so sensitive about the region today.
The Great Game sets the scene our Victorian Forefathers were something else they were awsume I would reccomend all Peters books on this subject he has made it his own Fantastic Brilliant
