From the rubbles of the disintegrating USSR, Kyrgyzstan was created in 1991 as a bright new nation state. Leading his country's storm-tossed ship into uncharted waters was the scholar-statesman Askar Akaev. A single man, whom destiny had placed at the helm of affairs, set out on a momentous journey, taking his anxious citizens from a controlled economy to a free market economy, from a one-party autocracy to a genuine multi-party democracy. Many doubted if he would succeed. Some hoped he would fail. Askar Akaev: A Political Journey looks at this leader in the midst of his great adventure.
