About This Item

Washington, DC: Counterpoint, 1999.. Second printing. Very good octavo hardcover in very good dust jacket. Light wear and rubbing to the edges of the boards with bumping to the head and heel of the spine and on the corners of the panels. The dj has some light wear and rubbing along the edges with fading along the spine and a little bit of scuffing to the covers. Page edges and dj's edges are slightly browned. Smoky smell to the book. 646 pages with maps, illustrations, chronology, notes, and index. An interesting history of the rivalry between Great Britain and Russia in Central Asia from the early nineteenth century to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
