Another New Publication Arrives in Print
I went into work today for the first time since Saturday. At the office I noticed a package in my in-box. It was a large envelope containing my two author copies of Deniz Kandiyoti (ed.), The Cotton Sector in Central Asia: Economic Policy and Development Challenges (London: The School of Oriental and African Studies, 2007). I wrote the first chapter in the collection, "A Caste of Helot Labourers: Special Settlers and the Cultivation of Cotton in Soviet Central Asia:1944-1956." The book is the result of an international conference I attended at SOAS on 3-4 November 2005.
