  Huaquera | Jun 20, 2019 |
Covers Turkic peoples over a millennium (not just "Turks"), from early nomadic wanderings in Central and Eastern Asia thru the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent in the mid-16th century. Includes essays by multiple scholars that trace Turkic history and cultural development. Sumptuously illustrated with works of art covering painting, sculpture, textiles, metalwork, and ceramics, which reflect the influences the Turks assimilated as they encountered other cultures. ( )
