Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan have both adopted the three-tier bachelor's, master's and PhD degree system, in and respectively, which is gradually replacing the Soviet system of Candidates and Doctors of Science. The strength of this chapter lies in its adroit use of the historical record of both states in the region, its deployment of useful theoretical arguments, and its granular knowledge of the complex politics of the area. However, many East Asians also inhabit the region, and historically they have been the majority before Russia's expansion west. About 60 percent of the region consists of desert land, the principal deserts being the Karakumoccupying most of Turkmenistan, and the Kyzylkumcovering much of western Uzbekistan.
