From the Silk Road to the Great Game, Central Asia has long been a region of great strategic, political, and economic importance. Currently the home of large oil reserves, Islamic terrorists, and new democracies, Central Asia is of growing visibility to Americans. In this atlas, Rafis Abazov provides 50 two-color maps, each accompanied by a facing page of explanatory text, that graphically illuminate the region's history tracing back to the 8th-7th centuries B.C. From the spread of Islam to the invasion of the Mongols, the area has been at the crossroads of some of the world's most important developments, all succinctly explained in this book. Students will regard it as a useful reference, and general readers will value it for its clarity and wealth of information.

'The atlas serves as a useful reference, valuable for its clarity and wealth of information.' -
' a cheap, up to date, nearly pocket-sized guide to a little-known area of enormous geopolitical importance, this book is unrivalled. It seems to me that most public reference libraries, and academic libraries catering for courses in geography, history, politics or international relations, ought to consider it for acquisition.' - Martin Guha, Reference Reviews
'...contains a wealth of clear and easily accessible information; it is a bold attempt to describe and graphically illustrate the history of a complex region and the author is to be warmly congratulated for it. The paperback atlas is an affordable and worthy addition to any library.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society
