Dust of Empire: The Race for Mastery in the Asian Heartland
Karl E. Meyer (au). When Charles de Gaulle learned that France’s former colonies in Africa had chosen independence, the great general shrugged dismissively, “They are the dust of empire.” But, particles of dust from a remote & seemingly medieval country like Afghanistan can jam the gears of a superpower. Meyer examines the historical impact of the Western encounter with Central Asia’s volatile nations. Provides details about regions & peoples now of urgent concern to America: the 5 Central Asian republics, the Caspian & the Caucasus, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, & Russia. Provides the context for America’s war on terrorism, for Washington’s search for friends & allies in an Islamic world rife with extremism, & for the new politics of pipelines & human rights.
