Abstract:

This book analyses the new pattern of security concerns of the Central Asian successor states, i.e. Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kirghizstan, Turkmenistan and Tadzhikistan. It argues that although some form of national consolidation occurred during the Soviet period, divisions within each national grouping remain. Furthermore, most of these states contain large minorities from other ethnic groups, including the titular nationalities of Central Asia and Slavic populations that have settled in the region. The security concerns of these newly independent states are therefore similar in many ways to those that faced other colonial countries shortly after they attained independence. That is, these states are confronted with the fact that subnational, supranational and national loyalties frequently override a population̕s loyalty to the state. It is this so-called ̕insecurity dilemma︠ of each of the Central Asian states which is examined in this book.
