Morton, Margaret W.: Cities of the Dead

The Ancestral Cemeteries of Kyrgyzstan
A Kyrgyz cemetery seen from a distance is astonishing. The ornate domes and minarets, tightly clustered behind stone walls, seem at odds with this desolate mountain region. Islam, the prominent religion in the region since the twelfth century, discourages tombstones or decorative markers. This book deals with this topic.
