              Post-Soviet, post-conflict Tajikistan is an under-studied and poorly understood case in conflict studies literature. Since 2000, this Central Asian state has seen major political violence end, countrywide order emerge and the peace agreement between the parties of the 1990s civil... war hold. Superficially, Tajikistan appears to be a case of successful international intervention for liberal peacebuilding, yet the Tajik peace is characterised by authoritarian governance. Via discourse analysis and extensive fieldwork, including participant-observation with international organizations, the author examines how peacebuilding is understood and practised. The book challenges received wisdom that peacebuilding is a process of democratisation or institutionalisation, showing how interventions have inadvertently served to facilitate an increasingly authoritarian peace and fostered popular accommodation and avoidance strategies. Chapters investigate assistance to political parties and elections, the security sector and community development, and illustrate how transformative aims are thwarted whilst 'success' is simulated for an audience of international donors. At the same time the book charts the emergence of a legitimate order with properties of authority, sovereignty and livelihoods. Providing a challenge to the theoretical literature on peacebuilding and concentrating on an under-studied Central Asian state, this book will be of interest to academics working on Peace Studies, International Relations and Central Asian Studies.

              Rising Powers and State Transformation advances the concept of 'state transformation' as a useful lens through which to examine rising power states' foreign policymaking and implementation, with chapters dedicated to China, Russia, India, Brazil, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia. The ...volume breaks with the prevalent tendency in International Relations (IR) scholarship to treat rising powers as unitary actors in international politics. Although a neat demarcation of the domestic and international domains, on which the notion of unitary agency is premised, has always been a myth, these states' uneven integration into the global political economy has eroded this perspective's empirical purchase considerably. Instead, this volume employs the concept of 'state transformation' as a lens through which to examine rising power states' foreign policymaking and implementation. State transformation refers to the pluralisation of cross-border state agency via contested and uneven processes of fragmentation, decentralisation and internationalisation of state apparatuses. The volume demonstrates the significance of state transformation processes for explaining some of these states' key foreign policy agendas, and outlines the implications for the wider field in IR. With chapters dedicated to all of today's most important rising power states, Rising Powers and State Transformation will be of great interest to scholars of IR, International Politics, and Foreign Policy. The chapters were originally published as a special issue of Third World Quarterly.

              Tajikistan is one of the lesser-known and least-researched former Soviet Central Asian republics. The birth of the new state in 1991 was followed closely by a civil war which killed more than 50,000 people and displaced many tens of thousands more. Whilst a peace agreement was si...gned in 1997 significant political violence continued until 2001. Today stability has returned to Tajikistan and the country 's political elite both the Government and dwindling opposition must take some credit for this. However, the vast majority of the population remains poor and subject to the endemic corruption, organized crime and political domination which characterise Tajikistan 's negative peace. More than a decade after the civil war, Tajikistan remains without a year-round supply of electricity and gas, is structurally reliant on seasonal external labour migration, and has an increasingly authoritarian government. This collection of essays places this transformation of Tajikistan in its historical context. It explores the sources of a state with its roots in the Soviet Union but which has been radically changed by independence and its exposure to global politics and economics. Authors address the sources of statehood in history, Islam and secularism, gender, economy and security. This book was originally published as a special issue of Central Asian Survey.

              Tajikistan is one of the lesser-known and least-researched former Soviet Central Asian republics. The birth of the new state in 1991 was followed closely by a civil war which killed more than 50,000 people and displaced many tens of thousands more. While a peace agreement was sig...ned in 1997, significant political violence continued until 2001 and intermittent outbreaks still occur today. Many claim it remains a very weak state and perhaps in danger of state failure or a return to civil war. However, the revival of Tajikistan should not simply be seen in terms of its post-conflict stabilization. Since its creation as a republic of the Soviet Union in 1920s, Tajikistan has been transformed from being a shell for socialist engineering to become a national society under a modern state. Despite a multitude of economic, social and political shocks, the Republic of Tajikistan endures. This book places the transformation of Tajikistan in its Soviet and Post-Soviet historical settings and local and global contexts. It explores the sources of a state with Soviet roots but which has been radically transformed by independence and its exposure to global politics and economics. The authors address the sources of statehood in history, Islam and secularism, gender relations, the economy, international politics and security affairs. This book is a new edition of a special issue of Central Asian Survey, 'Tajikistan: the sources of statehood', including two additional papers and a revised introduction.
