Central Asia: Post-Cold War Geopolitics And Geoeconomics

G.M. Shah (Author)

This book is a repository of latest available data and information on various aspects of geopolitics and geoeconomics of Central Asia. The Central Asian region described as the Heartland of Eurasian supercontinent by Halford John Mackinder in 1919, has witnessed a geopolitical competition for influence and control, known as the classical Great Game between the Russian Empire and the British Empire in the 19th century. The geopolitical rivalry between United States and the former Soviet Union during most of the 20th century, especially in the Rimland surrounding the Heartland has been described as the Cold War situation between the capitalist bloc and the communist bloc The disintegration of former Soviet Union in 1991 has ended the Cold War but has ushered an era of New Great Game in the Central Asian region. However, the object of geopolitical rivalry among major world powers and regional powers is mainly the vast hydro-carbon resource potential of the Central Asian region. The book will be of great relevance to the post-graduate students, research scholars and academicians interested in International Studies in general and the Central Asian Studies in particular.
