Since the collapse of communism in Central Asia, an Islamic political resurgence has been seen. Unfortunately, this book provides little insight into the reality of that resurgence.

He has relied upon hearsay it and anonymous sources, rather than heavyweight academic investigation. This has led to some glaring factual inaccuracies.

Nevertheless it is an Interesting Read. Although slightly dated now - it may be worth reading particularly with an eye to recent events and future developments in the area and the interplay of the major powers - China, US, Russia in the region.
