Last year, on October 25th, Republic Day was declared an official holiday in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
This day holds a significant place in our nation's history as it marks the adoption of the Declaration of State Sovereignty of the Kazakh SSR in 1990, which was the first step towards our path to Independence.
To mark this occasion, we would like to recommend some books about Kazakhstan that cover various topics, such as politics, society, economy, and history, in different languages. Additionally, we extend an invitation to visit the NU Library's reading room located on the 3rd floor, opposite the Circulation Desk, to view an exhibition dedicated to Republic Day, showcasing the culture and history of Kazakhstan.

The book opens with an outline of the history of Almaty, from its nineteenth-century origins as a remote outpost of the Russian empire, up to its present status as the thriving second city of modern-day Kazakhstan. The story then goes back to the Neolithic and early Bronze Ages, and the sensational discovery of the famous Golden Man of the Scythian empire.
