Description
(Financial Times Best Books of 2009) The former Soviet republics of Central Asia comprise a sprawling, politically pivotal, densely populated, and richly cultured area of the world. In this wide-ranging study, historian and political commentator Dilip Hiro places the politics, peoples, and cultural background of this region into the context of current international focus.

"For those who still get their '-stans' mixed up, Hiro's book provides a detailed and nuanced overview of the region of central Asia. He explains the ethnic tensions, religious intolerance and struggle for political identity in the lands caught between two behemoths the splintered Soviet empire and the rising Chinese one."Financial Times

"Readers acquainted with Mr. Hiro's prolific writing about Asia and the Islamic world will be unsurprised to learn that Inside Central Asia is a conscientious guide to the region, full of dependable history-telling and analysis."Economist (London)
