Supplied note:
"The May 2006 (Terrorism) issue of the CEF Quarterly is online at [the URL below]. The PDF version of the entire issue is available at: http://www.silkroadstudies.org/new/docs/CEF/Quarterly/May_2006.pdf

The CEF Quarterly is published by the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program (Johns Hopkins University (SAIS)/Uppsala University) and is devoted to analysis of the current issues facing China and Eurasia. Focusing primarily on Sino-Central Asian, Sino-Russian, and Sino-Caucasian relations, the aim of the CEF Quarterly is to foster discussion and information sharing between a geographically distant community that recognizes the significance of China's emergence in this important part of the world. In this issue we focus on terrorism, and how terrorism affects the security situation in China and the Greater Central Asia region. We are confident that the articles in this issue will shed some light on the current status of terrorism and its implications for security and counter-terrorism.
