I decided to look for other Kleveman titles having enjoyed this one so much when I came across your previous reviewer's comments. I have to agree as I did indeed read it with my atlas by my side!
I've only knocked off a single star for the lack of maps as I wouldn't want to discourage people from picking up this even handed and informative review of foreign policy in the Near East.

Format: Hardcover
This subject of the book is certainly worthy of its title in relation to Peter Hopkirk's "The Great Game".
Lutz Kleveman has tackled the very pertinent but under publicized subject of the battle being waged for the control of the earth's energy resources as the new century begins. Reading this book will certainly give you some insight into George Bush and the neocon's strategy of "full spectrum dominance" and Joseph Nye's concept of the use and value of "soft power".
However one glaring difference from Hopkirk's highly readable masterpiece is the dearth of maps or photos. I found myself unable to visualise the geographical relationships which are so important to grasping the full impact of this book.
Maps and photos would have tied together those relationships and made a good book on a very relevant topic so much better. Read this book with an atlas of Central Asia next to you. It could have been a strong 5 instead of a weak 3.

Format: Hardcover
A good reporter's account of the region. The complexity of the subject matter, whose nexus is oil and the management of the post-Cold War world in Central Asia, begs, however, for a more scholarly approach and greater analytical depth. As an introduction to the region, though, this book is an excellent starter.

As other reviews say, the maps are needed, perhaps another edition will include them. Otherwise, an excellent, unbiased view of this fascinating part of the world.
