The Central Asian Economies Since Independence
Richard Pomfret

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]


"Richard Pomfret's book stands out as a highly professional, thoughtful, and balanced study of the economic performance of five countries of the region (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) without soundbites or the excessive dramatization that unfortunately accompanies such writing on Central Asia."--Rein Mullerson, International History Review

"This book is a must read on Central Asian economies written by one of the few experts of the economies of the region."--Gael Raballand, Central Eurasian Reader

"The Central Asian Economies Since Independence is the most reliable and comprehensive treatment of economic and public policy issues in Central Asia. It will be of value to the theoretically oriented scholar and to the practically oriented practitioner alike."--Gregory Gleason, The Russian Review


"This highly important book makes a significant contribution to the field. It will satisfy a general audience of regional specialists and will also be of great interest to economists."--Yelena Kalyuzhnova, Director of the Centre for Euro-Asian Studies, University of Reading

"This book should stand head and shoulders above any other on the same topic. I have rarely read a book that I would so enthusiastically recommend. No significant development affecting the economies of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, the Kyrgyz Republic, and Turkmenistan between 1991 and 2004 seems to have been omitted, and the events and policies that are described are subject to critical scrutiny."--Michael Kaser, St. Antony's College, University of Oxford
