'Central Asia in the 21st century: Caught between Russia, China, the USA and Islamic Extremism' by Dr Christoph Baumer (Author and photographer)

Central Asia had become a backwater of world history by the early 19 th century, but the British-Tsarist Russian rivalry soon made it a focal point of European geostrategic politics. After falling behind the Iron Curtain in the 20 th century, the region has since returned to the limelight. Global powers have set their sights on the now independent, landlocked Central Asian republics due to their resources, geographical position between China and Europe and their proximity to Afghanistan.

Christoph Baumer has undertaken more than 20 expeditions and journeys to Central Asia since 1985, which have led to several major archaeological discoveries. The results of his research culminated in the comprehensive four-volume book History of Central Asia. The final volume, The Age of Decline and Revival, was published in April. Baumer was in 2015 recipient of the prestigious Sir Percy Sykes Award for his research on Central Asian cultural history
