Once an obscure and little-known region, Central Asia has become an important test of America’s ability to consistently promote global liberal change, of Russia’s true foreign policy agenda, and of China’s readiness to translate economic power into political influence. Terrorism, economics, and politics all converge in this strategic region, with important implications for Asia and the world.

This significant and timely volume helps readers understand current events in Central Asia and how those events affect the rest of the world.
