    [摘要] This report assesses the economic dimensions of security in post- Soviet Central Asia and considers their implications for the role of the United States. The September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States led those in policymaking circles to realize that instability, failed and failing states, and economic and political underdevelopment present security concerns not just to the states that suffer directly from these problems but to the global community as a whole.From this perspective, political, social, and economic trends in Central Asia merit attention.
    The report should be of interest to policymakers and analysts involved in international security and U.S. foreign policy. The analysis in this report is informed by a year-long research effort, which included travel to the region and extensive interviews with U.S., regional, and global specialists, government officials, and others. It involved a multidisciplinary team of researchers who sought to combine their understanding of politics, economics, and military strategic analysis to bring fresh perspectives to the questions at hand.
    The research reported here was sponsored by AF/A5X and conducted within the Strategy and Doctrine Program of RAND Project AIR FORCE. Comments are welcome and may be directed to the authors and to Andrew Hoehn, director of Project AIR FORCEs Strategy and Doctrine Program. Until late 2003, Edward Harshberger, thendirector of the Strategy and Doctrine Program, provided leadership and support. Until late 2004, acting director Alan Vick oversaw the completion of this effort. Research for this report, which was undertaken as part of a project entitled The USAF in Central Asia: Issues and Prospects, was largely completed in late 2003, although some updates were made as late as September 2005.
