Tournament of Shadows by Karl E. Meyer

Book Description

From the romantic conflicts of the Victorian Great Game to the war-torn history of the region in recent decades, Tournament of Shadows traces the struggle for control of Central Asia and Tibet from the 1830s to the present. The original Great Game, the clandestine struggle between Russia and Britain for mastery of Central Asia, has long been regarded as one of the greatest geopolitical conflicts in history. Many believed that control of the vast Eurasian heartland was the key to world dominion. The original Great Game ended with the Russian Revolution, but the geopolitical struggles in Central Asia continue to the present day. In this updated edition, the authors reflect on Central Asia's history since the end of the Russo-Afghan war, and particularly in the wake of 9/11.

Examines societies where people of diverse ethnicities, races and/or religions live together in peace.

Kingmakers by Karl E. Meyer Kingmakers, Paperback (October 2009)

A brilliant narrative history tracing today's troubles back to the grandiose imperial overreach of Great Britain and the United States.

Dust of Empire by Karl E. Meyer Dust of Empire, Paperback (June 2004)

A "rattling good"* inquiry into the historical impact of Western involvement with Central Asia, spelling out the implications for the United States and its allies today *(New York Times Book Review)
