The Afghans by W. J Vogelsang( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book discusses a wide variety of subjects including the Indo-Iranian invasions of the second millennium BC, the Persian Achaemenids, Alexander the Great, the Islamic conquest, the Mongols and the rise of the kingdom of Afghanistan in the eighteenth century. The author pays special attention to recent developments, including the Soviet occupation of the country and subsequent events that led to the dramatic crisis of late 2001. Much of the description of the contemporary period is based on the author's own experience of events. The history also draws on a wide variety of other sources, including archaeological, historical and linguistic materials."--Jacket
The rise and organisation of the Achaemenid Empire : the eastern Iranian evidence by W. J Vogelsang( Book )

13 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present book discusses the eastern part of the Persian Achaemenid Empire, which was founded around the middle of the sixth century B C by Cyrus the Great. Within twenty years the empire stretched from the Aegaean coast in the west, to the Kabul valley in the east. How did the Persians manage to conquer such a vast area within such a short time? And how did they manage to preserve their empire for two hundred years before being defeated by the military genius of Alexander of Macedon?" "The answer to the above questions is sought in the chaotic years that preceded the rise of the Achaemenids. On the basis of geographical and general historical information, the Persian Achaemenid texts and reliefs, classical sources and archaeological material, this study draws attention to the nomads from the Central Asian steppes and deserts who throughout history have played a major role in the developments that took place on the Iranian Plateau and beyond."--Jacket
Covering the moon : an introduction to Middle Eastern face veils by Gillian Vogelsang-Eastwood( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes and illustrates the history of face veils, from its pre-Islamic origins to the present day. It tells about the many regional variations, from Morocco in the far west to Central Asia in the northeast. It emphasises the role of face veils as a form of dress and identity, rather than a garment that conceals an individual's persona
The Afghans by W. J Vogelsang( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s and 1970s Afghanistan was depicted in the media as the romantic haven of nomads and a resort for hashish-smoking hippies; in the 80s it was seen as a country where brave warriors fought against the 'evil' Soviet empire, and in the 90s was redrawn as a semi-feudal land ruled by warlords and Islamic fundamentalists. In September 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States thrust the country to the fore of global politics. The Afghans brings together these different outside perspectives to form one coherent story, telling the dramatic history of the land and peoples of Afghanistan from prehistoric times to the present day."

Encyclopedia of embroidery from Central Asia, the Iranian Plateau and the Indian Subcontinent by Gillian Vogelsang-Eastwood( Book )

3 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first reference work to describe the history of embroidery throughout Central Asia, the Iranian Plateau and the Indian Subcontinent from the medieval period through to the present. It offers an authoritative guide to all the major embroidery traditions of the region and a detailed examination of the material, technical, artistic and design dimensions of the subject, including its use by today's fashion designers. For millennia, the peoples of Central Asian, the Iranian Plateau and the Indian Subcontinent have migrated and traded along the multiple strands of the Silk Road, both north-south and east-west. This history of contact has found rich expression within the arts and crafts of the region and particularly in the heritage of embroidery which has sat at the heart of the social and cultural lives of these diverse communities. Embroidery has been produced to decorate individuals, their families, their clients, their homes and public spaces and has reflected economic and political changes over time as well as social, religious and artistic contexts. Generously illustrated with 500 images (350 in colour) of clothes, accessories, and examples of decorated soft furnishings such as cushions, bed linen, curtains, floor coverings and wall hangings, the Encyclopedia is an essential resource for students and scholars of the subject
