Summary "The authors in this study assess internal security policy problems and examine the security content of evolving relations between the Central Asian states and regional and international powers - specifically the stakes, interests, and policies of Russia, China, Iran, Turkey, and the United States. While new possibilities for regional security cooperation in Central Asia can be explored, there remains a danger of destabilizing rivalry, which would fracture the region and hamper economic development. These dilemmas are examined by a team of specialists from Western Europe, the United States, Russia, and China."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
