Hi and welcome to Central Asia and Beyond. I have set up this blog as an outlet for my constant mental analysis on my regions of specialty, Central Asia and the Middle East. Here you will find posts on a topic or issue that has bothered me throughout the week and my analysis on these topics. You will also find links to the first chapters of my Doctoral Dissertation and Masters Dissertation. I hope these will help you understand more about these fascinating areas if you feel so inclined to read them.
