Asia statewide: The town of Novonikoyevsk on the Ob, where the Trans-Siberian railway passes, is now renamed 'Siberiewsk'. Irbit is temporarily named after a director of films about the revolution, 'Turin'. Kwast says: 'Pages 31 and 32 also contain important border changes in Arabia, for which the editor received the highly appreciated support of Prof SNOUCK HURGRONJE in Leiden. The agreements concluded between the Wachabite prince [i.e. Ibn Saud] and Yemen (and England and Italy!) made it desirable to designate the country of Asir separately'. A border was now drawn right across the great Arabian Desert (Rub al-Chali), between Ibn Saud's Arabia on the one hand and Yemen, Aden, Hadhramaut and Oman on the other. The northern side of Ibn Saud's Arabia also defined the border with the British-controlled states of Trans-Jordan, Iraq and Kuwait.
The Kyrgyz Republic was renamed the 'Kazakh Republic' (capital Kzyl Orda), Turkestan was further divided into the SSR Turkmenia (the capital Leninsk was added), the SSR Uzbekia (capital Samarkand), the ASSR Tajikistan (capital Dschoeschenbe (Dushanbe)) and the Karakirgiezen Autonomous Region (later Kyrgyzstan, capital Dzhapar Abad). Almost all the minorities in the Soviet Union have their autonomous areas; marked on the map are still those of the Oiroten or Oirjats and the Buryats (B.M.R. means Buryatic Mongolian Republic).
In China, after Mongolia had already been given a green piping to indicate Russian influence in the area, now Tannu-Tuva also has one. In Japan, the Japanese Inland Sea, hitherto shown on the map with the Japanese name, Seto Oetsji, is now listed with the Dutch and English name: 'Japanese Inland Sea/Inland Sea'. What the latter is for, the editors do not make clear. Fortunately, the 'Inland Sea' comes off again in the 34th edition.
