Bishkek Boys : Neighbourhood Youth and Urban Change in Kyrgyzstana s Capital Hardback
Part of the Integration and Conflict Studies series
In this pioneering ethnographic study of identity, author Philipp Schroder explores integration and urban change in Kyrgyzstan's capital Bishkek from the vantage point of young men living in the neighbourhood.
Touching on topics including authority, violence, social and imaginary geographies, interethnic relations, and competing notions of belonging to the city, Bishkek Boys offers unique insights into how post-Socialist economic liberalization, rural-urban migration and ethnic nationalism have reshaped social relations among the boys who come of age in this Central Asian urban environment.
