In his text, Robert Chenciner has skilfully combined Kaitag history, philology, ethnography, material culture and textile technology to provide a context for their rich and exciting art. To accompany the text, forty-seven outstanding Kaitag panels, representing the extraordinary variety of designs, colours and techniques which combine to create these great masterpieces, are presented on full colour plates. These also form part of a comprehensive catalogue of 171 examples, each illustrated in black and white, with a full description and technical analysis. The embroidery stitches are fully explained with diagrams, and many of the dyes have been analysed. This catalogue will doubtless serve as the definitive reference work on Kaitag art. 

Robert Chenciner is a Senior Associate Member of St. Antony's College, Oxford, and an Honorary Member of the Daghestan branch of the Academy of Sciences of Russia, and he has been studying textiles from a wide range of cultures for over fifteen years. He originally obtained permission to visit Daghestan in 1986, and during six years of ethnographic fieldwork with his collaborator Dr Magomedkhan Magomedkhanov visited hundreds of villages. He found that many traditional customs have survived, and the local people helped answer various questions about the embroideries and their usage. (T-CA)
