Brief overview of a complex century
Basically, this book discusses the region where Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan meet and the things that happened in the area during the 20th century. The emphasis is on Tajikistan and the story is mainly told through biographies of four or five people. Most of the four or five subjects were Islamic academics who ended-up as refugess at some point and also spent some time in Soviet prisons. It's a very readable book, my only complaint is that it is not longer and more detailed. I felt like I was reading the abdridged version, but still recommend the book.Was this review helpful?
