From the romantic conflicts of the Victorian Great Game to the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, Tournament of Shadows traces the struggle for mastery of Central Asia from 1812 to present times. It restores to life a remarkable roster of characters - soldiers, adventurers, mystics, princely pretenders, explorers, proconsuls and spymasters, some famous, some obscure - in an unfolding, hard-to-put-down narrative. Includes an Index.
