In Search of Kazakhstan: The Land That Disappeared

by Christopher Robbins - £9.99  Profile Books Ltd (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781861971098 | ISBN 10: 1861971095

The only thing most people know about Kazakhstan is that homeland to Borat – and he isn’t even real. Actually this vast place – the last unknown inhabited country in the world - is far more surprising and entertaining.
For one thing, it is as varied as Europe, combining stupendous wealth, grinding poverty, exotic traditions and a mad dash for modernity.
In a hilariously offbeat book, Christopher Robbins criss-crosses a Wild East full of surreal characters: he finds Eminem by a shrinking Aral Sea, hears the Kazakh John Lennon play in a dusty desert town, joins nomads hunting with eagles, eats sheep's heads and sushi with the President - and visits some of the most beautiful, unspoilt places on earth.
