Detailed Information for Seller's item number: 1179
The Turks of Central Asia in History and at the present day. An ethnological inquiry into the Pan-Turanian problem...
Author: Czaplicka, M. A. [Marie Antoinette], d. 1921
Publisher: Mansfield Centre, CT: Martino Pub., 2005

242 p., folding map, index; 24 cm. Title continues: "and bibliographical material relating to the early Turks and the present Turks of Central Asia / by M. A. Czaplicka." Reprint of the 1st ed.: Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1918. Since her death in 1921, the celebrated Polish anthropologist Marya Antonina Czaplicka's life and works have retained a remarkable contemporary significance. A woman in the man's world of Oxford anthropology, she fought her way to acceptance as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Anthropological Institute. Fluent in Russian, she revealed the exotic realms of the Siberian indigenous peoples and shamanism through her pioneering work in Aboriginal Siberia. Her account of her year in Siberia leading the 1914 Oxford University expedition, "My Siberian Year," provides a fascinating evocation of Siberian life on the eve of World War I. Czaplicka was an early advocate for autonomy for Russian Siberia and complete democratic independence for Poland, and wrote perceptively on the Turks in Central Asia, the Cossacks, and Russian folklore. Fine, new from publisher / no dj. Stock#1178x.
