Rare Works on Tuva in New Anthology Initiated by Russian Minister

The first volume of Tuvan anthology under the name 'Uraankhay. Tyva depter" (Uraankhay is an old name for Tuva in the early 20th century. Tuvan Notebooks) is released by Moscow Editorial House 'Slovo'. The edition is initiated and sponsored by Russian minister, native Tuvan Sergei Shoigu. The first book of the anthology in 7 volumes is introduced by Sergei Shoigu, a word of welcome is given also by Nikita Mikhalkov, famous Russian film-maker, head of the Russian Culture Foundation. The whole anthology embraces the period from 5-6 century A.C. to the Tannu-Tuva republic in early 20th century. It contains the rare works on Tuva which are now in 1 copy kept in the largest Russian libraries and almost unavailable to the majority of Tuvan people.

The first 600-pages large volume has works by Persian historian Rashid-ad-Din, Russian scientist Grum-Grzhimailo, chinese historian Sym Tsian etc. Sergei Shoigu is determined to send the anthology to over 200 schools in Tuva. Tuvan schoolchildren mostly unaware of the richest history of the motherland are the target reader of the new book, Shoigu believes.

The book is richly illustrated both with rare photos and remarkable drawings by young Tuvan artist Sholban Irgit.

The scrupoulous work at the anthology is carried out by Tuvan scientist Kara-Kys Arakchaa, 56, and Tuvan writer and journalist Kuzhuget Shoigu, 85.

The other 6 volumes of the Anthology are to be published in the coming two years.
