Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415081092, Paperback)

"What is Asia to Us", now available in paperback, looks at the uneasy relationship of Russia and Soviet Central Asia. It examines both the significance of Asia to the Russian mind and the place that Asia has occupied in Russian geopolitical thinking over the last hundred years, showing that recent outbreaks of violence are only the latest manifestation of long-standing tension. Hauner surveys events from the conquest of Turkestan to the invasion of Afghanistan and beyond in order to reassess existing theories about Russia's aims in Asia. He also examines the views of Russians themselves and explores the place of Eurasia in Mikhail Gorbachev's vision of a "common European house". This book should be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in the fields of Russian and Soviet history and politics, international relations and geography.
