The Rise and Fall of Khoqand, 1709–1876: Central Asia in the Global Age (Book)
Title: The Rise and Fall of Khoqand, 1709–1876: Central Asia in the Global Age
Author: Scott C. Levi
Abstract: Central Asia in the Global Age presents the first English-language history of the Khanate of Khoqand, a Central Asian state that emerged over the course of the eighteenth century, flourished and expanded by a factor of thirty in the early nineteenth century, and then collapsed utterly under the weight of Russian imperial expansion into the region. Combining his research in local sources with a world historical perspective, Scott Levi applies a “connected history” methodology to examine how Khoqand’s integration with globalizing forces shaped politics, economics, demographics, environment and lives in modern Uzbekistan’s Ferghana Valley, the heart of Central Asia. Levi also draws attention to ways that the Khanate of Khoqand resembles other states across both Asia and Africa that rose and fell on the frontiers of expanding empires. The richly illustrated book offers maps, a glossary and accessible prose that make it suitable for scholars, students and a general audience of readers whose interests touch upon the history of Central Asia, the Qing frontier, Russian imperial expansion, globalization and early modern world history.
