    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.

    A visually-stunning account of the extraordinary costumes of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia. This book is unique on two counts. First, never before has a book of the costumes of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia been published in American or Western European literature. This lavishly-illustrated volume features the work of the eminent Russian anthropologist, Claudia Ivanova Antipina, who died in 1996 at the age of 92. Claudia Ivanova Antipina was one of only a small number of Soviet Anthropologists who devoted their lives to research among the nomadic Kyrgyz, and she herself lived most of her life in Kyrgyzstan. Her work focused particularly on the material culture of the Southern Kyrgyz. The costumes and documentation in this volume represent a substantial body of research collected by the anthropologist during the years of her life in Kyrgyzstan, and have never before been published.
