The Politics of Transition in Central Asia and the Caucasus

Enduring Legacies and Emerging Challenges

The Politics of Transition in Central Asia and the Caucasus by Amanda E Wooden
Add to cart
US$ 48.95

Most books on the Caucasus and Central Asia are country-by-country studies. This book, on the other hand, fills a gap in Central Eurasian studies as one of the few comparative case study books on Central Eurasia, covering both the Caucasus and Central Asia; it considers key themes right across the two regions highlighting both political change and continuity.  Comparative case study chapters, written by regional experts from a variety of methodological backgrounds, provide historical context, and evaluate Soviet political legacies and emerging policy outcomes. Key topics include: the varied types and sources of authoritarianism; political opposition and protest politics; predetermined outcomes of post-Soviet economic choices; social and stability impacts of natural resource wealth; variations in educational reform; international norm influence on gender policy and the power of human rights activists.  Overall, the book provides a thorough, up-to-date overview of what is increasingly becoming a significant area of concern.
