First, despite the fact that more than two decades have passed since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, studies comparing its southern areas to the culturally similar Mid- dle Eastern and Central Asian countries (particularly, Iran, Turkey, Af- ghanistan, etc.) have been very rare. Therefore, this book can be consid- ered among the pioneering researches in the field.

However, since it lacks adequate theoretical explanation concern- ing the role of poverty in emerging violence, it implies theories on ethnic- ity and nationalism at length. Thanks to the discussion of a large body of the social science theory, the book, notably Chapter 2 and, to some extent, Chapter 3, may serve as a manual for those working on ethnicity, national- ism and conflict.
