The history of modern Central Asia is of growing importance because
of the Muslim role in Soviet society and the influence of the
Muslim population on the Soviet Union's relations with other Muslim
countries. Focusing on the state of Bukhara, this book deals with
the conflict between the central authority of the Russian empire
and its Muslim regions before, during, and immediately after the
After the Crimean War, a Muslim reformist movement developed among
the Bukharan intelligentsia who, in time, threw in their lot with
the Bolshevik revolutionaries. With the success of the Bolshevik
Revolution, however, the Muslim reform movement was both absorbed
and contained by it.
This rich account of the politics and administration of the state
of Bukhara and its religious life fills an important gap in our
understanding of the Muslim question in the Soviet Union today.
