It is at one and the same time a daunting and exciting prospect to take up the editorial role at
Central Asian Survey. Having just returned from the 20th Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS)
conference at George Washington University, it is clear the field of Central Asian Studies is in a
strong position. As my predecessor Madeleine Reeves noted in her editorial for the last issue,
‘our field has grown and consolidated in ways that were hardly visible at the time’ when she
took up the post. It is true the Central Asian Studies field I was first introduced to in the
early 2000s has expanded in ways which seemed unimaginable at the time. Back then I
could read everything that had been published on the region. Now, given the considerable
number of monographs and the on-going pipeline of peer-reviewed articles being published
year-on-year, each exploring the multifaceted, dynamic and complex nature of the historical,
social and political nature of relations in the region, it would take a lifetime to read them all.
