Daghestan is home to more than 30 distinct peoples. Each has their own language yet they share a surprisingly homogeneous culture that has both withstood and absorbed centuries of external influences. A fascinating account of change and adaptation in the villages of this area.
'The author is a great story-teller, relating with enthusiasm about his travelling. "Daghestan: tradition and survival" can be seen as a first step, encouraging us to study the languages, culture, traditions and politics of this area in further detail.' - Helma van den Berg, Bibliotheca Orientalis
