The "Architectural Guide Chechnya and the North Caucasus" represents the first pioneering work of its type to shed light on a little-known mountainous region split between ­Europe and Asia, one of the few places on Earth that can claim a varied amalgam of ethnic cities, ­languages, cultures, a remarkable architectural legacy, and human puzzles.
This ground-breaking and comprehensive vademecum, collecting unreleased materials and more than 130 buildings scattered throughout seven geo­graphical and ethno-cultural areas of the North Caucasus, is a unique piece of literature to anyone interested in the culture, the history and, of course, the captivating architectural heritage of this mysterious patch of Earth.
