  2. New Title: Asia, the US and Extended Nuclear Deterrence

    'As China rises and America responds, questions of nuclear strategy will become increasingly central to their relationship, and the risks of nuclear rivalry and confrontation will grow. Andrew O'Neil's outstanding book provides vital insights into the central, and potentially very dangerous, role that nuclear weapons will play in shaping Asia's strategic future. It is lucid, authoritative, and very important to anyone trying to understanding where Asia is heading.'Hugh White, Professor of Strategic Studies, Australian National University

New Titles

  1. 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.

  2. Publishing This Week: Leadership and Authority in Central Asia

    This book explores the unfolding of world history in a remote corner of Central Asia: the region of Badakhshan. The history of this region has commonly been explored through the lens of the major superpowers who competed over its territory in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including Britain, Russia, and China.

    Leadership and Authority in Central Asia identifies traditional forms of religious authority within the network of religious functionaries at a range of levels and discusses the functions of Ismaili political leaders as they have evolved through time.

    Chief Rabbi Michael Schudrich said he could not imagine “continuing as chief rabbi in a country where Jews are not complete”. He continued to say that “it is the worst decision in the history of the parliament against Jews and Muslims.”
