Biography:

John Man is a historian and writer with special interests in Central Asia and the history of written communication. He likes to combine history with travel to the places he writes about. He studied German and French at Keble College, Oxford, before doing two postgraduate courses, a diploma in the History and Philosophy of Science at Oxford and Mongolian at the School of Oriental and African Studies.
