Restless Valley has the makings of a gripping thriller: revolutions, massacres, civil war, drug-smuggling, brazen corruption, contract hits and larger-than-life characters who may be villains…or heroes…or possibly both. Yet Philip Shishkin’s new book is not a novel.

Join Shishkin, two top RFE/RL experts on Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, and moderator Joshua Foust in a discussion of this firsthand account of Central Asia’s unfolding history from 2005 to the present.
