Review of the book “Nazir Tyuryakulov” by T.A. Mansurov, published in 2022, which presents a biography of the Soviet diplomat N.T. Tyuryakulov. Diplomatic mission of Nazir T. Tyuryakulov was a duel with British and American competitors in the 1920s. The review also focuses on the portrait of the book’s author. Tair A. Mansurov is one of the largest systemic post-Soviet politicians. He influenced creation of the state alliances, the future of seas and borders, formation of cultural codes, protection and preservation of the heroes’ memory, the revival of temples and mosques.
Recently, several events have occurred that can be called “historical markers”: growing economic conflict between the USA and China, personnel changes in Ukraine, Iranian problem, a number of international negotiations of V.V. Putin, including the telephone conversation with Donald Trump and direct negotiations with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, “hot” elections to the European Parliament. Some politicians in private conversations speak of the “third world war” proximity, while others say that it has already begun. I think it’s useful to look in the mirror of history and try to see Clio’s clues there.
