Danziger's Travels: Beyond Forbidden Frontiers

$6.00

By Danziger Nick

"In 1984, 26-year-old artist Danziger set off from London with a grant to trace the ancient trade routes between western Europe and China, intending "to bring a greater richness to our British society, and extend our understanding of the world." Determined to travel by land, he negotiated a colorful but treacherous route through Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and China, only rarely having been able to obtain requisite visas and not infrequently endangering his life. It is impossible not to admire Danziger's daring and his ingenuity in surmounting cultural, linguistic and legal barriers: he contacts Afghan rebels in Iran to smuggle himself across their border and stays with them as they endure Soviet raids; he evades Pakistani intelligence agents to bluff and bribe his way into China, becoming the first foreigner, he claims, to cross the Khunjerab Pass in 35 years. But readers may question the relevance of Danziger's missionthe narration of his maneuverings (including amorous encounters with women who are otherwise omitted in his book) overshadows observations of the peoples and cultures; moreover, he put himself and those who helped him at risk. "

Paperback, 1993, 426pages, age spots on edge
