Central Asian Survey

"Melissa Chakars presents us with a detailed history of this transformation, through investigating the development of three institutions that were key to bringing about the change: the education system, the mass media, and state-sponsored cultural production. In doing so, she enhances our understanding of the diverse and yet thoroughgoing modernization of Soviet-era society, in addition to the phenomenon called ‘modernization’ in general. Her case study illustrates the contingent and varied ways central Soviet policies were translated into regional governance"
