Since Central Asia is generally considered to be the "forgetten world" of the former Soviet Union, Central Asian women constitute the "lost voices" within those regions. Corcoran-Nantes considers how the shift to Western capatalist ideals has affected gender relations in Central Asia. While the uneasy synthesis between socialism and Islam under the Soviet regime offered many women considerable status and personal freedom these gains have been rapidly eroded by democrazation.

'The main strength of Lost Voices is the excellent account that it gives of the situation of women in Central Asia during the Soviet Period ... for anyone with an interest in, and some knowledge of, Central Asia this book constitutes an excellent introduction to, and analysis of, gender issues in Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.'Joanna Hoare, project manager - publishing, Oxfam GB'Lost Voices takes an important step in opening up dialogue with women in what are perceived to be backward and repressive Central Asian societies ... Dr Corcoran-Nantes makes a valuable contribution to the wider understanding of the lives of Central Asian women.'Asian Affairs
