Overview

For centuries, Central Asia has been a leading civilization, an Islamic heartland, and a geographical link between West and East. After a long traditional history, it is now in a state of change. With the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, five newborn Central Asian states have emerged in place of the former Soviet Central Asia and Afghanistan. Central Asia provides the most comprehensive survey of the history of the impact of Russian rule upon the political, economic, social, intellectual, and cultural life of this diverse region. Together, these essays convey a sense of the region’s community as well as the divisive policies that have affected it for so long.
Now in its third edition (it was first published in 1967 and revised in 1989), this new edition of Central Asia has been updated to include a new preface, a revised and updated bibliography, and a final chapter that brings the book up to 1994 in considering the crucial problems that stem from a deprivation of sovereign, indigenous leadership over the past 130 years. This volume provides a broad and essential background for understanding what has led up to the late twentieth-century configuration of Central Asia.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
**** BCL3 lists the predecessor version carrying the subtitle A century of Russian rule (1967). A needed revision of the classic. Deals with the people, their intellectual lives, the land, history, nationalism, agriculture, industry, modernization. A cloth edition is reported at $57.50; we've not seen it. **** The first edition, titled Central Asia: A Century of Russian Rule (1967), is cited in BCL3. The present edition is a revision of Central Asia: 120 Years of Russian Rule (1989). This new, augmented edition preserves the previous 17 chapters intact. Besides writing a new final chapter that focuses mainly on the eventful period 1989-93, the editor has also revised the preface and notes about contributors, and has enlarged and updated the bibliography of English-language sources and readings. Paper edition (unseen), $26.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
