Editorial Reviews

Ronald Grigor Suny
Swietochowski's study of twentieth-century Azerbaijan is a unique and groundbreaking work. This is nothing less than the recovery for Western readers of a lost history of a little-known people. By looking on both sides of the Iranian-Russian frontier, he tells the complex and diverse stories that have complicated the processes of nation-building and national identity for the Azeri Turks.
History Today
Addresses the long-standing Russian-Iranian partition of the land west of the Caspian sea and provides a thorough cultural history of a people split by the forces of imperialism.
Booknews
Swietochowski (Monmouth College) looks at the long-standing Russian- Iranian division of the land south of the Caucasus Mountains in the cultural history of a people torn apart by the forces of imperialism. He explores the conflicts between Europe and Asia, Islam and Christianity, Russia and the Middle East, and Turks and Iranians in the region, and explores questions of identity on both sides of the border.
