    Much scholarship of any region focuses on the perceived problems that hold back a population. Central Asia is no exception, as it is a region with political, economic, and environmental problems that seem to keep Central Asians from a "better" future. Alongside all the struggles of life, however, are relationships of meaning and wellness that contribute to a "life worth living." Recognizing the struggles of everyday life, contributors to this book explore how people navigate relationships to find meaning, how elders attempt to re-establish morality, and how development workers pursue new futures. Such futures centre around the role of family, friends, and meaningful employment in yielding contentment; and the influence of Islam, ethnicity, and hospitality on community. The first regional collection to take well-being as a frame of analysis, the contributors show how visions, spaces, and cosmologies of well-being inform everyday life in Central Asia. This volume will appeal not only to those interested in Central Asia, but more broadly to anyone concerned with how taking well-being into account better captures the complex realities of life in any region. This book was published as a special issue of Central Asian Survey.

    This examination of the political, social, and cultural changes of Kyrgyzstan since the collapse of the Soviet Union offers tools to go beyond the country’s simplistic dual status of being both an “island of democracy” and a “failing state” to a more nuanced understanding of its own position and its role in the region.

    Annotation Kyrgyzstan's economic reform program faces more difficulty than those of other countries of the former Soviet Union (FSU). But a reform agenda could lead to significant progress in the medium term. This study examines the country's historic dependence on imports and economic transfers and provides a strategy to speed short-term and medium-term reforms. The strategy would coordinate monetary, fiscal, and trade policies with those of other FSU countries. It would reduce the budget deficit to limit inflation. A plan for increasing hard currency exports outlines free trade agreements that would bolster trade among the countries of the FSU. The study places priority on reforms that promote privatization and suggests which enterprises to privatize quickly. Monetary and fiscal reforms are described for boosting savings and loosening credit. Proposed spending cuts would phase out unproductive enterprises and reduce consumer subsidies while protecting critical social services. The report estimates the financial and technical assistance Kyrgyzstan will need. It suggests a cutoff level for financing so as to stay within the country's capacity for servicing debt.
