Birds’ Books just posted a review of Monica Whitlock’s Land Beyond the River,
An informative journalistic description of the social and political developments in Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Uzbekistan during the 20th century.
The book gives accounts of the turbulent, and unfortunately often violent, recent events in the region such as:
unrest and revolution in Bukhara in the second decade of the 20th century, the Tajik civil war and its resolution in the 1990s, and ongoing displacement of Tajiks due to war, forced migration, and other hardships.
