Dilip Hiro's INSIDE CENTRAL ASIA Named One of the Best Books of the Year by Financial Times

Inside Central Asia, Dilip Hiro's sweeping survey of the former Soviet Republics of Central Asia, has been selected by the Financial Times as one of the Best Books of 2009: ""For those who still get their “-stans” mixed up, Hiro’s book provides a detailed and nuanced overview of the region of central Asia. He explains the ethnic tensions, religious intolerance and struggle for political identity in the lands caught between two behemoths – the splintered Soviet empire and the rising Chinese one."
