About This Book

2500 miles from Beijing, Kashgar is one of the most remote cities in the world. But, until the early twentieth century, it was known as the "pivot" of central Asia, and before that, it was one of the principal way stations on the Silk Road. Today it remains one of the most complete historical urban centres in China. This book celebrates its history and character through beautiful colour photographs and accompanying text. With selected bibliography.
