Abstract [en]

Modern Central Asia research in Scandinavia draws on traditions established by a great number of famous explorers of Inner Asia, among them Sven Hedin from Sweden. Now that the political seclusion of Central Asia is ending after several decades of Soviet hegemony, Scandinavian scholars are re-entering the Silk Routes with an interdisciplinary approach that provides clues to the cultural origins of Central Asian societies and opens up new horizons of study.

In the first chapter of the present volume, a survey is given of past achievements in this field. Subsequent papers represent a broad spectrum of research including such topics as archaeological exploration in the Takla-makan desert and a recently discovered Mongolian manuscript from the early 17th century, as well as linguistic issues relted to Mongolian and language minorities in Sinkiang. Papers in the final section of the book deal with the current political situation in the former Soviet Central Asia and Afghanistan.
