Yet, post - September 11, a transformation in US policy has suddenly taken place. US troops are now stationed there- Washington has put the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan on its list of terrorist organizations- and the Bush administration has promised to triple aid to President Karimovs highly authoritarian regime.

This unique study explores the central question from a longer-term Uzbek point of view: to what extent are closer ties between Washington and Tashkent contributing to political reforms inside Uzbekistan? Dr Akbarzadeh describes political events since independence, including the emergence of a radical Islamic opposition. He analyses how September 11 has catalysed a transformation in Washingtons attitude as it perceived a common Islamic enemy, and he examines the possible beginnings of a retreat from Soviet-style politics.
