This is a comprehensive study of the surviving monuments of the Qarakhanids - an important yet little-known medieval dynasty that ruled much of Central Asia between the late 10th and early 13th centuries. Based on extensive fieldwork and many hard-to-find Russian sources, the book places the surviving monuments into the wider cultural context of the region. Many photographs and new ground-plans are included, as well as detailed studies of individual monuments and the wider architectural aesthetic. These monuments serve as the link between the mostly lost Samanid architecture and the far larger and better-known monuments of the Timurids.

Richard McClary studies pre-Mongol architecture of the wider Iranian world, from Anatolia and Iraq to Iran and Central Asia. He also works on Iranian ceramics, with a particular focus on mina'i wares. He completed his doctorate at the University of Edinburgh, on Rum Seljuq architecture, and had published on monuments across Anatolia, as well as in Mosul. He held a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship at the University of Edinburgh and is now a lecturer at the University of York, where he teaches Islamic Art and Architecture.
