Product Details

Praise

“As an introduction to the history and culture of the region, Ahmed Rashid’s is as good as you will find.”—The Times Literary Supplement

“Ahmed Rashid is one of Pakistan’s most gifted and astute political commentators. This account will be of interest to scholars and lay readers alike. What makes it especially valuable is that Rashid’s priorities are very different from those of most Western observers.”—Tariq Ali
 
“Ahmed Rashid writes concisely, keeping up a rapid pace starting with the historical background of the region, looking in turn at its five republics—Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan—and finally at their common interests and rivalries…. Rashid’s book is eminently dispassionate and unideological.”—The New York Times

“The five republics are examined with a sharp eye for detail and an uncanny ability to focus on the internal feuds and rivalries of the newly independent states.” —Independent

“The first readable, thorough account of the region.” —Financial Times

“A well documented and readable book about societies of great complexity.” —Choice
