NICK FIELDING, ENGLISH WRITER:

 - Because there are also changes taking place in their society and it is my experience when you have these tumultuous events, the big events, the movement from a pre-modern society.

As part of the ‘Modernization of Kazakhstan’s Identity’ program, two volumes of the anthology of modern Kazakh literature will be translated into six languages of the UN. The initiative will introduce the world community to Kazakh works and authors as well as integrate the literary pieces into the global process.
