About This Book

"For those who still get their '-stans' mixed up, Hiro's book provides a detailed and nuanced overview of the region." — Financial Times (Best Books of the Year) The nations of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Iran—the majority of them former Soviet republics—remain little understood in the West even in the post-Cold War era. This book delves into these Central Asian countries: their histories, cultures, economics, politics, militaries, and relationships with regional neighbors, Russia in particular. Ultimately, Inside Central Asia is an outstanding, in-depth introduction to this part of the world, "full of dependable history-telling and analysis" ( The Economist ). Praise for the work of Dilip Hiro "The writing is clear and informative." — The New York Times "Hiro's mix of lively writing and serious detail should draw in readers." — Choice "Intriguing analysis." — Publishers Weekly "[An] eminent historian." — Kirkus Reviews
