This unique compilation on the Eurasian states of the former Soviet Union introduces the little-known, yet strategic heartland of the world. Some of the data included has never before been published; none has been assembled in such a manner in which interrelationships of culture, history, diplomacy, economics, and defense are so clear and understandable. Following an overview of the Soviet Union and its recent history, the guide examines each region and each state. Data is provided on the political structure and policies, the military, and the economy. The remnants of the Soviet Union, such as the military-space complex, are described, as are the key emerging leaders. The volume concludes with a bibliography and general subject index. As a guide to the new republics, no other source, reference or text, has accomplished this comprehensive undertaking. It is indispensible for students and scholars alike and all who need to understand the contours of the new Eurasia with which the world must live for the foreseeable future. [82]A unique compilation on the new Eurasian states of the former Soviet Union.

?This one-of-a-kind compilation is both timely and well-researched and gives the reader his first good introduction to the little-known, yet strategic heartland of the world. It is excellent for those interested in the former Soviet Union and successor states. Highly recommended for those interested in civil strife and ethnic tension backgrounds in the Commonwealth of Independent States.?-The Friday Review of Defense Literature
