Kazakhstan's Assassinated Democracy describes how the highest levels of
government in Kazakhstan are attempting to suppress the country's genuine
democratization, particularly through the case of a political party, Atameken.
It is based on extensive interviews with Dr. Yerzhan K. Dosmukhamedov, Chairman
of the Atameken Party. These interviews and articles — most of which were originally
published in Kazakh or Russian — have created quite a public stir in Kazakhstan.
Dr. Dosmukhamedov analyses problems in building a civic society in the country,
key political events, major issues of domestic and foreign policy, and the objective and
subjective influences affecting the deep historical process currently underway in the
country — nothing less than the transformation of relationships between the state and
the person.
Kazakhstan's Assassinated Democracy is directed to a broad range of readers, and
is intended for anyone interested in the future of Kazakhstan, the development of political
parties, and the forces holding back democracy in that country.
