Read all about it

This is a post that’s going to grow over time, as I find more things to add to it. It’s a list of useful places to pick up news and analysis of Eurasian politics:

South Asia, the Middle East, Central Asia and the Caucasus, China and Russia.

##General

[Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty](http://rferl.org/) is the bomb. So is [EurasiaNet](http://eurasianet.org/)

[YaleGlobal](http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/ca/) doesn’t have much volume, but does have the ivy-league smarts.

[Eurasia Daily Monitor](http://jamestown.org/edm): a firehose, but a good one.

Russian-language newspapers:[Kavkazweb](http://www.kavkazweb.net/), [Day.AZ](http://day.az) (Azerbaijan), [Yandex](http://news.yandex.ru), [Izvestia](http://izvestia.ru), [Redtram](http://redtram.com) (in English, French, Russian)

Others: [Power and Interest News Report](http://www.pinr.com)

##Think Tanks

[Institute for Public Policy](http://www.ipp.kg/) (Kyrgyzstan)

[SIPRI](http://www.sipri.org/), the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute,

##Central Asia general

[Ferghana.ru](http://eurasianet.org/) naturally enough centers on the Ferghana Valley.

[Central Asia – Caucasus Analyst](http://www.cacianalyst.org/) – has been [criticised](http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2006/06/05/starr) in several places, and I don’t know nearly enough to judge for myself.

##News by country

###Kyrgyzstan

[New Eurasia](http://kyrgyzstan.neweurasia.net/) has a list of news sites in the sidebar:

###Uzbekistan

[UzReport](http://news.uzreport.com/) – business-oriented news from Uzbekistan.

###China

[China.org.cn](http://china.org.cn) is ‘China’s official gateway to news and information’. Then there is [Xinhua](www.xinhuanet.com/english/), the state news agency.

###US

[Institute for the Analysis of Global Security](http://www.iags.org/reports.htm) Neo-con writings on energy geopolitics, from a US-centric perspective. Include several reports on the former Soviet Union.
