Central Asia on the Frontier of Empire: The Khanate of Khoqand, 1709-1876

The aim of this project is to produce the first book to focus direct attention on the ways that early modern Central Asia actively engaged with the globalizing world. The book will also represent the first English-language history of the Khanate of Khoqand (1798-1876), an extraordinarily dynamic state that emerged during the eighteenth century in eastern Uzbekistan's Ferghana Valley. The study will analyze ways that global political, economic, technological and environmental developments influenced life in early modern Central Asia and contributed to the rise, and fall, of Khoqand. It will also illustrate the ways that Central Asians influenced the policies of their much larger imperial neighbors on the Eurasian periphery. The final product will be aimed at an audience that includes scholars and students with interests in Central Asian, Russian, Chinese and world history, as well as the study of comparative empire and the history of globalization.
