Nationalism in Russia and Central Asian Republics: Unfinished Democratic Revolution

Shams-Ud-Din (Author)

Included in this volume are 27 papers contributed by leading social scientists and area experts drawn from India, Germany, the United States and Kazakhstan. The volume gives a comprehensive picture of the social, political, cultural and strategic developments in Russia and the Central Asian Republics. Ranging from an analysis of nationalism and future of Democracy in Russia and the Central Asian Republics the volume makes a penetrating analysis of inter-ethnic relations, role of religion and culture in the newly independent countries. It also discusses the plight of non-Russian minorities in the Russain minorities in the Central Asian Republics. Some of the papers in the volume are devoted to an in-depth analysis of the relations between the Central Asian Republics and India, Russia, Iran and Pakistan. The volume also surveys the economic changes from the centralised economic system to a market economy. Also included in the volume are two papers dealing with the hydrocarbon resources and global oil politics. It also covers the Russian security dilemma in the wake of NATO's eastward expansion. In short, the volume is a comprehensive account of the post-communist Russia and the Central Asian Republics: their Dilemmas and aspirations.
