the water kingdom a secret history of china приобрести по лучшей цене

Black Dragon River is a journey down one of Asia's great rivers. The world's ninth largest river, the Amur runs along the border between Russia and China. Seen as a crossroads for the great empires of Asia, the area gives journalist Dominic Ziegler a lens to examine the societies at Europe's only borderland with east Asia. He travels from the river's top to bottom, and weaves the history, ecology and peoples to show a region obsessed with the past. The Amur cuts through terrain legendarily difficult to cross. Near the river's source, Ziegler travels on horseback from the Mongolian steppe into the taiga, and is later forced to take the Trans-Siberian Railway through the four-hundred-mile valley of water meadows inland. As he voyages deeper into the Amur wilderness, Ziegler also journeys into the history of the peoples and cultures.The known history of the river begins with Genghis Khan and the rise of the Mongolian empire a millennium ago. For China, the Amur is a symbol of national humiliation and Western land seizure; to Russia it is a symbol of national regeneration, New World dreams, and eastern prospects. To understand Putin's imperial dreams, we must comprehend Russia's relationship to its far east and how it still shapes the Russian mind. Not only is the Amur a key to Putinism, it is a key to unlocking the current complex relationship between Russia and China.
