9780748668557: Sovereignty After Empire: Comparing the Middle East and Central Asia

How does empire affect the route to successor sovereign state systems and the features of the sovereignty of these systems? This unique systematic comparison of empires and of their consequences for sovereignty in the Middle East and Central Asia brings theory on empire and sovereignty to bear on empirical variation across the two regions. The novel approach to understanding the political structures of states in two significant areas of the non-European world offers an important comparative discussion of post-imperial development and sovereignty. It raises a clear set of research questions about variations of imperial practice and puts forward an attractive and persuasive case that imperial legacy has been an important variable in the post-independence period.

Review:

'This rich collection provides a thoughtful analysis of imperial rule and the meaning of sovereignty in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. The contributions investigate the impact of the colonial experience on the subsequent trajectories of the ruled, and for their place in a dynamic and changing world.' -- William Fierman, Indiana University 'This is an excellent study of the impact of empire on the post-colonial state and challenges the idea of a sharp break between empire and sovereignty. With its cutting-edge comparison of the Middle East and Central Asia, this is an impressive comparative historical and political analysis which will be a valuable and lasting contribution to the academic literature.' -- Professor Roland Dannreuther, Head of Politics and International Relations, University of Westminster 'In this innovative book, leading international scholars compare notes on the experiences of post-Soviet Central Asia and the successor states of the Ottoman Empire. Theoretically rigorous and informed by important new research, each contributor sheds original light on these diverse Muslim states' transition from empire to sovereignty. A common cultural legacy grounded in Islamic history and a present reliance on hydrocarbons makes this study of two geostrategic regions required reading for scholars and decision makers alike.' -- Eugene Rogan, Director of The Middle East Centre, University of Oxford 'Offering a novel way to understand the political structures of states in two significant areas of the non-European world, this book will make a significant contribution to thinking about the development of the state systems in the former colonial world.' -- Roger Owen, Professor of Middle East History (Harvard) 'This rich collection provides a thoughtful analysis of imperial rule and the meaning of sovereignty in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. The contributions investigate the impact of the colonial experience on the subsequent trajectories of the ruled, and for their place in a dynamic and changing world.'
