Review:

'This volume provides a thought provoking and richly detailed assessment of key migration issues in Central Asia. Included contributions address the valuable resilience labor migration provides to family budgets and regime stability across Central Asia, while also highlighting the risks of migration reliance in term of dependence on foreign labor markets and global economic shifts. Both the inclusion of leading scholars from Central Asia and the quality of the field-based insights across the chapters make this a uniquely valuable volume, whose contributions add to our understanding of macro issues related to regional development and micro issues linked to gender and social expectations. Covering key topics in Economics, Anthropology, Political Science and Sociology the collection will be of importance to a wide community of scholars interested in issues of migration and development within Central Asia and across the globe.' Cynthia Buckley, Professor of Sociology, The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Since the start of the 1990s, Central Asia has been the main purveyor of migrants in the post-Soviet space. These massive migrations due to social upheavals over the last twenty years impact issues of governance; patterns of social adaptation; individual and collective identities; and gender relations in Central Asia. This volume raises the importance of internal migrations, those at a regional, intra-Central Asian, level, labor migrations to Russia, and carries us as far away to the Uzbek migrants based in Istanbul, New York, or Seoul, as well as to the young women of Tashkent who head to Germany or France, and to the Germans, Greeks, and Jews of Central Asia who have returned to their ethnic homelands . Contributors include Aida Aaly Alimbaeva, Stephanie Belouin, Adeline Braux, Asel Dolotkeldieva, Olivier Ferrando, Sophie Hohmann, Nafisa Khusenova, Erica Marat, Sophie Massot, Saodat Olimova, Sebastien Peyrouse, Luisa Piart, Madeleine Reeves, Elena Sadovskaya.
