The 21st century has seen a steady growth of the importance of Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). It was there that the Great Game, a struggle for supremacy and influence, was played between the British and the Russian empires in the 19th century. Nowadays, the metaphor of the New Great Game is employed to refer to the rivalry for power over Central Asia between such actors of world politics as China, Russia and the USA, along with the European Union, Iran and Turkey. The region’s appeal and significance to international politics derive from its huge oil and gas reserves, its geopolitical situation, growing threat of international terrorism (born in Afghanistan and Pakistan), drug trafficking, migrations and religious fundamentalism. This volume adds to the practical and theoretical dimensions of the debate on Central Asia. As such, it will be of interest to researchers, analysts, students, journalists and all those interested in international relations.
