Embracing democracy and market economy: lessons from Kyrgyzstan
AbstractWhere Are All Our Sheep?: Kyrgyzstan, A Global Political Arena is a result of ten years multi-sited fieldwork in Kyrgyzstan (2001 - 2010), namely in the Naryn region in the north, its capital Naryn and Bishkek, the country's capital. From the observation of the summer lifestyle of livestock herding up to the top politicians of the country and foreign election observers, Petric explores the social change in the country and its actors by adopting a holistic approach. Opening to the world after the independence for Kyrgyzstan in 1991 meant introducing the market economy and democracy which led to an important movement of people and ideas.
