For the greater part of the 19th century, from the Caspian to the Karakoram and from the Khyber Pass to the confines of Siberia, Englishmen, Russians and others contended for control of Central Asia. They called it the Great Game. In A PERSON FROM ENGLAND Sir Fitzroy MacLean recalls the romantic fascination this contest held for the players. He tells the dramatic stories of agents, travelers and spies, official and unofficial, military and civilian, who in the course of 100 years infiltrated the Khanates of Central Asia. This 1958 Jonathan Cape Hardback is in Good condition.
