'Peter Hopkirk is truly the Laureate of the Great Game' Jan Morris

About the Author

Peter Hopkirk has travelled widely in the regions where his six books are set - Central Asia, the Caucasus, China, India and Pakistan, Iran, and Eastern Turkey. He has worked as an ITN reporter, the New York correspondent of the old Daily Express, and - for twenty years - on The Times. No stranger to misadventure, he has twice been held in secret police cells and has also been hijacked by Arab terrorists. His works have been translated into fourteen languages.


'Brilliant' -- Patrick Leigh Fermor, Daily Telegraph 'There can be few more fascinating subjects, or few authors better qualified to write about it' -- Fitzroy Maclean, Independent 'Immensely readable and magisterially detached. A gripping and impressive narrative of adventure and war' -- Financial Times 'Hopkirk's brilliant and engrossing account remains the classic text on how to handle the various and often dangerous people who inhabit the region, fill of tips and warnings for the Game's current players.' -- BBC History Magazine 20060601 'Fans of political history and adventure are in for a treat as publishing house John Murray reissues its Peter Hopkirk series' -- Sian Gibson, Geographical Magazine 20060601
