Summary
This is the only book since the fall of the Soviet Union to analyze the security of the newly emerged independent states in the strategically vital region of Central Asia and the Caucasus. From one perspective, Central Asia and the Caucasus are a powder keg. Their struggling, unstable nations that once made up the Soviet Union are either already embroiled in conflict or sliding rapidly toward it. Their region is oil-rich, dotted with U.S. military bases, and the countries are potentially important trading partners and allies for the United States. How will the future turn out? This insightful work maps out the possibilities and dangers that lie ahead for the nations of Central Asia and the Caucasus. The book analyzes the current security situation and clarifies its historical context, identifying the factors that have shaped the security of these young nations since their independence. It also examines the parameterspolitical, economic, ethnic, energy, and militarythat will decide the security of the region in the future. - Publisher
