1 Review
Despite its strategic importance and its easier accessibility since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Central Asia has nevertheless remained a blank spot on the map of Western scholarship and public awareness. Bringing together papers presented at the VII ESCAS Conference, this volume aims to shed light on the historical, political, cultural, and socio-economic development of this region. Scholars from within and outside Central Asia discuss a wide range of topics, covering historical processes and events as well as present developments of regional and global concern.

Gabriele Rasuly-Paleczek is an assistant professor at the University of Vienna. Julia Katschnig teaches at the University of Applied Sciences for Business and Technics in Wieselburg, Austria.
