Abstract

"Restless Valley: Revolution, Murder and Intrigue in the Heart of Central Asia." Philip Shishkin. Yale University Press. May 2013. --- Two revolutions, a massacre of unarmed civilians, a civil war, a drug-smuggling highway, brazen corruption schemes, contract hits, and larger-than-life characters who may be villains…or heroes…or possibly both. In Restless Valley, Philip Shishkin focuses on the powerful and the powerless in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. This is a rare breed of book: informative, fast paced and yet palpably intimate, concludes Lewis Garland.
