Countering Global Terrorism: Developing the Antiterrorist Capabilities of the Central Asian Militaries
Central Asia is a key region in the war on terrorism. It is a region of fragile new states, all facing a wide range of challenges. This monograph offers a framework for improving the antiterrorist capabilities of the Central Asian militaries. This includes increased and focused military training with a special emphasis on Special Forces units. The author also argues that all assistance to the Central Asian states must complement broader diplomatic efforts to promote social, economic, and political reform.
