City on the Caspian Sea that had
a lively rug commerce in an early period. With the Russian conquest was
made part of Daghestan. It
is a political distinction since Derbent rugs are more Persianate and
true Daghis are a much more tribal rug. True Daghestan is the
mountainous region and Derbent and the coastal areas are a separate
area even though the Russians put them under one Governor. Derbent was
the northen most Persian city in Safavid days. It was one of the first
to be occupied by the Russians while Daghestan was relatively late.
One very prominent older
Armenian Rug Dealer (not Jim Keshishian) told me that the dealers used
Derbent as the attribution you give a Caucasian rug when you do not
know where it is from.

Pasha Abdul Rashid Dostum was
the primary warlord of the Uzbeks
of Northern Afghanistan. Dostum was an Ally of the Russians until they
pulled out in 1989. They left him in control of the equipment and
supplies that they left. He ruled in Mazar -i- Sharif
while backing the Rabbani Government. He only lost to Taliban when they bribed
his Generals (Abdul
Malik Pahlawan) with huge amounts of money from Saudi Arabia
Dostum was not popular with the
folks at the US State Department. This was primarily because the were
in bed with the Pakistanis. In fact the people I heard criticize Dostum
the worst were the same US Officials who wanted to recognize Taliban
back in 1998.
Dostum commanded Afghan army's
