Recent political changes in Central Asia, where the United States is replacing Russia as the dominant power, are having a profound effect on Russian speakers in the region. These people, formerly perceived as progressive and engaging with Europe, are now confronted by the erasure of their literary, musical, cinematic and journalistic culture, as local ethnic and American cultures become much stronger.

This book examines the predicament of Russian culture in Central Asia, looking at literature, language, cinema, music, and religion. It argues that the Soviet past was much more complex than the simplified, polarised rhetoric of the Cold War period and also that the present situation, in which politicians from the former Soviet regime often continue in power, is equally complex.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Amongst MacFadyen's conclusions is that the tragedy of Russian experience in Central Asia is that the gap of experience is the truth, and not a barbarous falsehood; the embodiment of 'death and destruction' that empire sees beyond its borders is part of the very diversity it purports to exemplify.'
