Social anthropologist and awardwinning author Erika Fatland made a rare and unforgettable trip across one of the most mysterious parts of the world. Sovietistan records that personal odyssey, revealing how the modern states of Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan were shaped by their Soviet heritage and ancient histories. From bride snatching to toppling a dictator, from shrimp gathering to meeting the survivors of the Osh massacre, hers is an eye-opening, illuminating journey. [S] [124]
