Ethnographies of the State in Central Asia: Performing Politics

Madeleine Reeves (Editor), Johan Rasanayagam (Editor), Judith Beyer (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

With fresh and provocative insights into the everyday reality of politics in post-Soviet Central Asia, this volume moves beyond commonplaces about strong and weak states to ask critical questions about how democracy, authority, and justice are understood in this important region. In conversation with current theories of state power, the contributions draw on extensive ethnographic research in settings that range from the local to the transnational, the mundane to the spectacular, to provide a unique perspective on how politics is performed in everyday life.
