The personal history of a Bukharan intellectual : the diary of Muḥammad Sharīf-i Ṣadr-i Z̮iya by Sharīf Jān Makhdūm Ṣadr Z̤iyāʼ( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sadr-i Ziya's diary lends valuable perspective to numerous studies narrowly focused upon the modern Reformists (Jadids) of his area. It also, and perhaps in the first place, reveals the endless occupational and mortal uncertainties tormenting a Central Asian Islamic judge practicing his profession within an aged political and economical system deteriorating during the last decades, ca. 1880-1920, of the state of Bukhara. By supplying a Bukharan intellectual's personal history, Sadr-i-Ziaya, author, poet and calligrapher, also reveals himself as an admirable human being who enjoys life but endures the repeated, scalding experience of losing beloved children, their mothers, and other family members, in an era when medicine and prayer scarcely deterred the multitude of prevailing inflictions. Notwithstanding this strong focus upon his personal life, Sadr-i-Ziya provides an unparalleled view of the central role played by the omnipresent religious hierarchy in his homeland."--Jacket

Central Asia, 130 years of Russian dominance : a historical overview by Edward Allworth( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, Central Asia has been a leading civilization, an Islamic heartland, and a geographical link between West and East. After a long traditional history, it is now in a state of change. With the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, five newborn Central Asian states have emerged in place of the former Soviet Central Asia and Afghanistan. Central Asia provides the most comprehensive survey of the history of the impact of Russian rule upon the political, economic, social, intellectual, and cultural life of this diverse region. Together, these essays convey a sense of the region's community as well as the divisive policies that have affected it for so long.Now in its third edition (it was first published in 1967 and revised in 1989), this new edition of Central Asia has been updated to include a new preface, a revised and updated bibliography, and a final chapter that brings the book up to 1994 in considering the crucial problems that stem from a deprivation of sovereign, indigenous leadership over the past 130 years. This volume provides a broad and essential background for understanding what has led up to the late twentieth-century configuration of Central Asia

The Tatars of the Crimea : return to the homeland : studies and documents( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new edition of Edward A. Allworth's The Tatars of Crimea, has been extensively updated. Five new chapters examine the situation of Crimean Tatars since the breakup of the USSR in 1991 and detail the continuing struggle of the Tatars to find peace and acceptance in a homeland."--BOOK JACKET. "Contributors to this volume - almost half of whom are Tatars - discuss the problematic results of the partial Tatar return to Crimea that began in the 1980s. This incomplete migration has left the group geographically split and has complicated their desire for stability as a people, whether in their own homeland or in the Central Asian diaspora. Those who have returned to Crimea, the region on the Black Sea in Ukrayina (formerly Ukraine), have found themselves engulfed in a hostile political environment dominated by Russian residents attempting to stifle the resurgence of Crimean Tatar life. Specific essays address the current political situation in and around Crimea, recent elections and promising developments in the culture, leadership, and movement toward unity among Crimean Tatars."--BOOK JACKET

Evading reality : the devices of ʻAbdalrauf Fitrat, modern Central Asian reformist by Edward Allworth( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and Arabic and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evading Reality treats the great ideological/political struggle embroiling literate Central Asia during the early 20th century. One of the region's leading cultural intellectuals, Abdalrauf Fitrat (1886-1938), in his Bukharan and Turkistan homeland, for over two decades fought against the restrictive notions of arch-conservative Muslim hierarchies as well as the rigid dogmatism of communists. This study translates and analyzes three (one in two versions) of Mr. Fitrat's key writings composed in the second stage of this war of ideas. The early 1920s, already a period of state thought control, obliged him to evade the ostracism of authorities by speaking out both deceptively and disarmingly at one time. In the end, his writings succeeded in arming his spiritual descendants in the battle against Marxist ideology. His literary devices confused opponents, delighted adherents and provide a rich legacy for today's Tajik and Uzbek societies
The Tatars of Crimea : return to the homeland by Edward Allworth( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of Edward A. Allworth's The Tatars of Crimea has been extensively updated. Five new chapters examine the situation of Crimean Tatars since the breakup of the USSR in 1991 and detail the continuing struggle of the Tatars to find peace and acceptance in a homeland.Contributors to this volume-almost half of whom are Tatars-discuss the problematic results of the partial Tatar return to Crimea that began in the 1980s. This incomplete migration has left the group geographically split and has complicated their desire for stability as a people, whether in their own homeland or in the Central Asian diaspora. Those who have returned to the region on the Black Sea in Ukrayina (formerly Ukraine) have found themselves engulfed in a hostile political environment dominated by Russian residents attempting to stifle the resurgence of Crimean Tatar life. Specific essays address the current political situation in and around Crimea, recent elections, and promising developments in the culture, leadership, and movement toward unity among Crimean Tatars.Beyond demonstrating the problems of one nationality caught in a fierce power struggle, The Tatars of Crimea offers an example of the challenges faced by all nationalities of the former Soviet Union who now contend with deteriorating economic and political conditions, flagrant discrimination against ethnic minorities, and the denial of civil and human rights common in many of the newly independent states.Contributors.
