Uzbekistan, the most strategically situated Central Asian country, has ... exhibited the most appalling record on human rights and democratic reforms. Yet, post-September 11, there has been a transformation in US policy. US troops are now stationed there; Washington has put the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan on its list of terrorist organizations; and the Bush administration has promised to triple aid to President Karimov's highly authoritarian regime. This book explores the central question from a longer-term Uzbek point of view: to what extent are closer ties between Washington and Tashkent contributing to political reforms inside Uzbekistan? It describes political events since independence, including the emergence of a radical Islamic opposition; analyses how September 11 has catalysed a transformation in Washington's attitude towards a perceived common Islamic enemy; and examines the possible beginnings Read more Show Less

Overview

This study explores the centrally important question from a longer-term Uzbek point of view: to what extent are closer ties between Washington and Tashkent contributing to political reforms in Uzbekistan? Eschewing simplistic assumptions about democratisation, Akbarzadeh explores what this new relationship means for subtler processes of shifting political power. Akbarzadeh analyses political events since independence, including the emergence of radical Islamic opposition. He explores how September 11 catalysed a transformation in Washington's attitude and tempered its concerns with 'transition to democracy', in order to fight Islamism. Akbarzadeh argues that this shift in emphasis has given new life to the authoritarian regime of President Karimov, facilitating a return to Soviet-style politics.
