Markov continued the acquaintance of the modern reader with the system of views of this well-known public figure and publicist.

Markov as a Crimean scholar, “Essays on the Caucasus” (1887) are no less informative in terms of the pictures, plots and ideas they have captured. The book reflects the intense search for a balance of intercultural attitudes, capable of developing in the right direction and strengthening the friendly dialogue of the numerous peoples. The authors of the article show the historical place of this work in the study of the Caucasus and reveal the relevance of the system of enlightened views on the tasks of economic policy and the cultural interaction of the peoples of our multinational country expressed in the book.
