Hrair Dekmejian, Hovann H. Simonian. Once the landlocked backwater between Iran and the Soviet Union, the Caspian has in the last ten years emerged as the epicentre of vast conflicting interests in a region where massive geopolitical issues converge with enormous energy resources and dramatic latent instability. Russia’s conflict in Chechnya is a direct by-product of the strategic importance of the Caspian region. Troubled Waters presents a comprehensive analysis of the political and economic dynamics of the Caspian basin.

Troubled Waters presents a comprehensive analysis of the political and economic dynamics of the Caspian basin. It examines the diverse issues and players in what has become a modern variant of the “Great Game” of the 19th century. Following a historical overview of the region and its oil industries, the book analyzes the domestic politics and the foreign policies of the five states bordering the Caspian – Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan. It identifies all the external interests involved in the Caspian’s political rivalries and control over its resources and territory, including the US, the European powers, various nationalist movements, Islamic militants, national corporations and international corporations.

Mr.Savik
I knew a few things about central asia and the caspian region before reading these compelling pages. The authors knowledge is spread into this short book, giving all the information necessary to be aware of the geography, politics and economy of the countries in this part of the world. As you will see, the region is of main interest of "external actors" such as the United States and Europe, and big internal players such us Russia and Iran, all well depicted by the authors.

Energy is the main business of the caspian countries of course, but due to the geography in where those countries lay and the politics and different interest that mark the region, render difficult to pump that gas and oil off to new markets. Hence, everything here is long pipelines through different countries that help to make the price of the product less competitive, also affecting new projects (for example, a pipeline through Afghanistan). Thing is, these countries have plenty of gas resources that need to have markets. This book is a great read for those interested in the subject.

Nothing but Armenian propaganda. Lies on every page. Too hard to use as toilet paper - set it on fire. Burns very nice!

In the decade since the breakup of the Soviet Union, we
were witness to the maneuvering and positioning of various
neighbor states and global powers as the battle for world
energy grows hotter.
I found this book to be a great introduction to the Caspian
region. Before this book, researchers and policymakers had
to look hard(and in many places) to find objective sources
of information that answered all their questions. This book
contains all that one needs to quickly learn about the region,
its history, politics, current problems, and perspectives for
the future.
Policymakers around the world recognize the strategic
importance of geopolitical control of the region. What I found
most striking is the equal attention given to all of the
political players in the world and not just the point of view
of Moscow or Washington.
I also appreciated the attention given to the Caspian's
environment, which is currently threatened to become another
Aral sea.
This book is for everyone starting from diplomats to
individuals who have an interest in the region and anyone
in between. I'll be recommending it to journalist friends
of mine who are covering or aspire to cover the region
in the future.

The two authors are very knowledgeable about the region and give the most comprehensive and updated analysis of the Caspian area, covering both the political and economical parameters. The book has an impressive bibliography, which makes it an excellent research tool for whoever is interested in expanding on the subject. Very well written.
