  8. New title: Writing the City in British Asian Diasporas

    "Britain’s cities have been indelibly shaped through centuries of migration and settlement. In this wonderfully evocative and richly textured book, the authors trace the historical and contemporary inscriptions of five iconic British Asian cities – Birmingham, Bradford, Leicester, London and Manchester. Exploring multiple ways and scales of ‘writing’ the city, these essays remind us that ‘all cities are global cities’, woven from diasporic and local (hi)stories, journeys and the imagination of home." - Claire Alexander, University of Manchester

  9. New title - Power Networks and Violent Conflict in Central Asia

    When the five Central Asian republics gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, expectations of violent conflict were widespread. Indeed, the country of Tajikistan suffered a five-year civil war.The factors that the literature on civil wars cites as the causes of this war were also present in Uzbekistan – but this country had a peaceful transition. Examining this empirical puzzle by isolating the crucial factors that caused war to break out in Tajikistan but not Uzbekistan, this book applies a comparative approach to the broader question of why civil wars occur. It challenges many common explanations of civil war both generally and in Tajikistan in particular. This includes highlighting the importance of elites’ power perceptions, which have their origins in the interaction of structural-, process-, and network-related variables.
