Description: Torino: Allemandi, 2010. 31cm., hardcover, 303pp. illus., several in color. English text. Summary: For thousands of years, civilizations met and flourished in the steppes and river valleys of Central Eurasia. The system of material and cultural exchanges that linked Europe and East Asia (the so-called Silk Road) crossed the south of present-day Kazakhstan. First through these connections, then through the expansion of competing empires, ideas and religious beliefs spread and influenced each other, stratifying in a unique religious presence in the cultural heritage. This book, shows the historical depth of religious life in the Kazakh lands from early archaeological findings to the twentieth century, shedding light on the social and religious history of a crucial cultural crossroad in world history.
