This book surveys the geography of Soviet Central Asia in the postwar period and highlights geographic issues in the region. "Geographic Perspectives on Soviet Central Asia" is organized around the unifying themes of integration and the prospects for outmigration of the indigenous population to other parts of the former Soviet Union. The book also covers major geographic issues: regional population growth; the declining level of the Aral Sea; the extent to which investment in Central Asia has been equalized relative to other parts of the former Soviet Union; imperialist tendencies in political integration; geographic segregation by ethnic group and its effect on ethnic processes; the effect of the dominance of investment in primary activities; and the demographic effect of agricultural mechanization.
