I will post this book on PBS, it will be the only copy in the system. I ordered it when it was the only copy too a few years back. I don't expect much of a rush to order on it but you never know especially as the only copy.

This is a short book but I have been reading it off and on for about 2 months. It is probably more of a text book than an actual just read & enjoy book. The rest of the title is: Transition to Authoritarianism on the Silk Road. While only a 123 pages, it goes into detail of Uzbekistan in several areas. It is more of a starting point book for someone wanting to learn about the country. Interesting the book was published in 2000 so before 9/11 happens. Afghanistan is mentioned as a bordering country in a civil war where the Taliban have taken over most of the country by then and is a cause of unrest in other Central Asian countries because they are all generally Muslim people in these countries. I will have to do some wikipedia research to see what has become of Uzbekistan since 2000, I kept myself from looking this up on purpose until I had finished just for the excitement of it all.
