According to Albert Rau, ‘The Era of Independence’ contains a complete and versatile analysis of the recent history.

ALBERT RAU, MEMBER OF MAZHILIS, LOWER HOUSE OF KAZAKH PARLIAMENT:

 - After 20 years, we are analyzing that most importantly the President is a strategist, who defined realistically who we are, what we are and where we are. This is a lesson which means weaknesses can be turned into strength. What are these weaknesses? Interethnic strife was predicted and he turned it into the power and now it is called uniqueness. Social and interethnic harmony was one of the priorities.
