Very interesting, brief introduction to the subject,
This review is from: The New Great Game: Blood and Oil in Central Asia (Paperback)
In my opinion, TNGG provides a good introduction to the geopolitics and recent history of the area. Each of the main countries in central Asia is covered in a single chapter, a structure that I found useful and logical.
The book is written in a fairly objective tone with a reasonable number of anecdotes that maintain interest. It is not, however, an in depth study so if you follow the broadsheets or read 'Foreign Affairs' every couple of months then this will not educate you - I don't and TNGG did teach me a lot.
