Item description for Central Eurasia in Global Politics: Conflict, Security and Development (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Mehdi Parvizi Amineh...
This anthology brings together studies of post-colonial, post-Cold War Central Eurasia. This part of the world is in transition from Soviet institutions to independent statehood, nation building, resistance against state expansion, cultural change and the release of market forces. The theoretical framework of the study is called 'critical geo-politics.' The objective of the work is to better comprehend the nature of the post-colonial 'Great Game'. Part I studies US power projection activity in the region. America is extending its World War II trans-oceanic 'defense perimeter into the fossile fuel rich area between integrating Europe, recovering Russia and industrializing China. Part II details various aspects of state-nation building and soci-cultural and economic change in the region. Part III studies interactions between outsiders, neighbors and Central Asian Republics. Conflict and cooperation in the Caspian region is studied in part IV, with Aral Sea and Azerbijan as cases.

One of the best present essays in politics Jul 25, 2005
This book contains one of the most interesting essays written recently about global politics. The reader will find explanations and answers that will satisfy the most demanding. Even, for those who may disagree, this piece of work will provoke a discussion that will be enriching and lead to new conclusions. I consider, after Fukuyama's and Huntington's work,that we are in presence of an essencial reference and tool for the Diplomat and the Politician.
