Overview

Within one century the Uzbek state was formed twice: once when it was 'created' as the Soviet Socialist Republic of Uzbekistan in the post revolution period and then again when it was reborn as the sovereign Uzbek Republic after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The Formation of the Uzbek Nation-State: A Study in Transition examines the process of nation-state formation in Central Asia, providing a detailed and insightful look at the transitions the Uzbek state has undergone in governance, politics and culture, and the problems it has confronted. Author Anita Sengupta pays particularly close attention to the social construction of the cultural elements that are so often the basis for deliniation of territorial boundaries, and the relationship between political and cultural factors in the Uzbek state. Compelling and persuasive, The Formation of the Uzbek Nation-State challenges traditional theories about the formation of nation-states to confront the long-term transitions that shape cultures and governments.
