Islamic historiography and "Bulghar" identity among the Tatars and Bashkirs of Russia by Allen J Frank( Book )

Annotation This biographical dictionary, based on a Turkic manuscript compiled in 1912, is essential for all those interested in the Islamic history of Central Asia under Russian and Chinese rule. Covering the period from 1770 - 1912, it brings to life the muslim communities of Sufis and scholars of the eastern Kazakh steppe. Its extensive biographical information provides fresh insights into the intellectual, political, and religious life of a region for which indigenous Islamic sources are virtually unknown. With a historical and textological introduction, full English translation, extensive notes, and an Arabic-script Turkic text
Bukhara and the Muslims of Russia : Sufism, education, and the paradox of islamic prestige by Allen J Frank( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Bukhara and the Muslims of Russia Allen Frank examines the relationship of Tatars and Bashkirs with the city of Bukhara during the Russian Imperial era. For Muslims in Russia Bukhara's prestige was manifested in genealogies, fashion, and in the elevated legal status of Bukharan communities in Russia. The historical relationship of Russia's Muslim communities with Bukhara was founded above all on Bukhara's reputation as a holy city of Islam, an abode of great Sufis, and a center of Islamic scholarship. The emergence of Islamic reformism critiquing Bukhara's sacred status, led by Tatar scholars who were trained in Bukhara, created a number of paradoxes. The symbol of Bukhara became an important feature in theological and political debates among Russia's Muslims."--Publisher's website
