An Illustrated History of Kazakhstan

Asia's Heartland in Context


This lavishly illustrated book reveals the full history of the heart of Central Asia across the ages, focusing on the region that is modern-day Kazakhstan.

Using essays from renowned archaeologists, historians and scholars as the core of each chapter, this book explains Kazakhstan's long and complex history. This flowing narrative is complemented by a range of beautiful maps and images, from exquisite museum pieces to landscapes that place you within the hauntingly beautiful environment that moulded the region's rich social fabric.

The reader is taken on a fascinating journey, from pre-history when changing climate and habitats opened up new areas to human migration, through the globally significant era of the warrior nomads and city-states along the trading routes between East and West, to the colonization of Central Asia by Imperial Russia and the chaos of the Soviet period. Independence for the Central Asian states has seen Kazakhstan take a leading role in the region, and the exciting prospects of this modern state suggest a future as rich and engaging as its past.

Jeremy Tredinnick is a Hong Kong based writer, photographer and editor. He has edited and contributed to a number of Odyssey books and he writes and photographs for travel publications such as TIME and Conde Naste Traveller. He has travelled extensively throughout Kazakhstan over the past decade, but admits that he has barely scratched the surface of its natural, cultural and historic wealth.
