Central Asia has fascinated the world since Marco Polo and the Silk Road. Hertfordshire Press continues this tradition by publishing worldwide what is read in the region both past and present, translating from and between Central Asian languages, Russian, English and more. Building on unique links within the countries of the region, Hertfordshire Press has a broad list of titles that range from illustrated reference works, to the first publication in English of a revered Kyrgyz-language novelist, to academic texts and travel writing. Central Asia is right in front of you, and you need only to open a page.
