S. Frederick Starr asks "What's Happening at the Heart of Eurasia?"
It is long since time a new continent was discovered, but this may well be happening in the heart of Eurasia. There, between the great powers of India, China, Russia, and Europe, a "Greater Central Asia" is emerging. Ten countries are steadily emerging from centuries of oblivion. As they do so, they have the potential to relink Europe and Asia as they did during the region's golden age. In the process, they may be creating a different and more modern model of Muslim society than we see in the fractious Middle East. It's worth it for the U.S. to support this process.
