It is the smallest, weakest, and poorest of the group and despite it name, is not only inhabited by Tajiks. This Dictionary supplies essential information for anyone interested in the country of region, including librarians, students, scholars, and diplomats. It offers insight into the old kingdoms and empires, the old communist state, and now the independent republic. This is conveyed mainly through numerous entries on persons, places, events, institutions, ethnic groups, political, economic, social, and cultural issues. An essential and handy reference work, this Dictionary will appeal to librarians, scholars, students and anyone interested in the history and politics of Tajikistan.
