"One of the most detailed analysis of Central Asian politics to date. . . . The historico-political analysis introduced here is a real tour de force, with McGlinchey examining the long-term structural causes of Central Asia's patronage systems while establishing a direct connection between the politics of perestroika and divergences in post-Soviet authoritarian developments. . . . McGlinchey knows the region very well, and adds a significant degree of analytical sophistication to first-class research."
An interesting and noteworthy contribution to the understanding of authoritarian dynamics in Central Asia. It is both fascinating and illustrative of wider patterns and pressures of authoritarian regimes that could be applied to other countries in the post-Soviet states.”
Eric McGlinchey is assistant professor of government and politics at George Mason University.
