Cribb, Joe and Georgina Herrmann, eds. 2007. After Alexander: Central Asia before Islam. Proceedings of the British Academy 133. Oxford: Oxford University Press.

This volume brings together many of the papers given at the conference After Alexander: Central Asia Before Islam: Themes in the History and Archaeology of Western Central Asia, which took place at the British Academy from June 23rd to 25th, 2004. This conference was convened in recognition of the new era of archaeological collaboration with the Central Asian republics that became possible following their independence from the Soviet Union in 1992, and to draw attention to this important but under-supported area of study.
