Notes: Published as part of a retrospective on the centenary of Halford MAckinder's 'pivot' paper, this article shows how his ideas continue to have life in Central Asia and Central ASian studies. Internationalising the study of Mackinder, it contrasts how an American, Russian and Uzbek scholar use his work. It shows that his work is not merely of historical significance, and calls on geographers to critically engage with it not only historically, but in new incarnations elsewhere. It shows that there is a social life to ideas, that they travel between places and change as they do.
