Dilip Hiro's INSIDE CENTRAL ASIA in Literary Review
Jason Burke takes a long look at Dilip Hiro’s Inside Central Asia in the August issue of Literary Review: “Hiro is a prolific author and sometimes disappoints readers by deploying his obvious powers of analysis sparingly. Happily his fine latest work, Inside Central Asia, is littered with perceptive points. . . .This is a useful, well-researched, detailed and intelligent book.” Inside Central Asia: A Political and Cultural History of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Iran is available in bookstores everywhere.
