The Changing Geopolitics of Central Asia and the Caucasus

The Changing Geopolitics of Central Asia and the Caucasus
Svante E. Cornell

 

The geopolitical environment surrounding Central Asia and the Caucasus has changed dramatically over the past decade, with important implications for American and European interests. Regional and great powers have accorded the region ever greater attention, and the regional states themselves have developed a greater agency in responding to the geopolitical challenges confronting them. European, and in particular American, perceptions of the region have not kept up with these changes and are in need of updating.
