Reading is transformation


Veiled and Unveiled in Chechnya and Daghestan

Iwona Kaliszewska, Maciej Falkowski




Offering an unflinching portrait of life in Daghestan and Chechnya, focusing on its girls and women, this book presents the north Caucasus today through the eyes of two Poles, an anthropologist and a writer, who travelled there amid a locally rooted but newly assertive Islamic revivalism.
