The Politics of Transition in Central Asia and the Caucasus : Enduring Legacies and Emerging Challenges, Hardback Book

The Politics of Transition in Central Asia and the Caucasus : Enduring Legacies and Emerging Challenges Hardback

Edited by Amanda E (Bucknell University, USA) Wooden, Christoph H. (University of Colorado, Denver, USA) Stefes

Description

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.
