The Circassians : A Handbook, Hardback Book

The Circassians : A Handbook Hardback

Part of the Caucasus World: Peoples of the Caucasus series

Hardback

Description

The Circassians have a long history forged in the crucible of their homeland in the mountains and valleys of the Northwest Caucasus.

Of the many peoples of the Caucasus, they are notable for their wide and vociferous diaspora, particularly in Turkey and the Middle East.

After living for many centuries in comparative obscurity under the shadow of Russia, the Circassians staged a minor comeback after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

As was the case with other regions in the Caucasus, this rebirth into nationhood was swiftly stifled, yet today's Circassian territories have been rediscovered as a cultural and political focus for Circassians globally.

This book provides an in-depth description by an insider' of the ancient beliefs, customs and traditions of a remarkable people - offering insights into a fascinating world, much of which has until now remained unknown.

This complex universe is unlocked in the hope of spurring more interest in the unique culture of the Circassians.
