I've read 50 pages so far and I do not know how I could put it down it was that interesting. The info is interesting and the writing style is simple and engaging. Good info on comparisons of Alexander the Great, Ghengis Khan and Tamerlane, the tsarist policy and the Soviet (here some simple positive facts and Stalins attempt to free Muslim women and destroy religion). What a wonderful book about (for me) exotic places (Romantic) in the East.
