Encapsulate everything, grasp nothing: Russian imperialist discourse in Uzbekistan

MacFadyen, David. 2006. Central Asian Studies Series, vol. 6. London: Routledge. A 162 pages. ISBN 978 04153 4134 9 Russian Culture in Uzbekistan: One Language in the Middle of Nowhere.

This idiosyncratic book explores Russian language discourses in Uzbekistan. MacFadyen is one of those unusual writers who packs vast conceptual territory into a small text: a 43-page bibliography buttresses a mere 128 pages. But while MacFadyen quotes some of his sources at length, he also has a lot to say himself, and effectively crafts much of his esoteric argument.
