Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Emphasizing the destructive process rather than the accompanying attempt to reshape Central Asian cultures, Keller (Russian/Soviet history, Hamilton College) describes what happened to Islam in the Central Asian parts of the Soviet Union during the first four decades of the 20th century, when the Communist government tried arduously to destroy the religion and failed. She views the region as an integral part of the Soviet Union, and focuses on state institutions and policies rather than on culture. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
