The aim of this study is to present a body of Uzbek-language texts with English translations selected from audio and graphic sources that represent an example of the Islamic debates taking place among Uzbeks since 1991. The text is divided as follows: Historical Introduction; Part I: Lectures of the Islamic Reformers, Part II: A Quasi-Official Response to Christian Missionaries; Part III: Political Polemics and Official Rebuttal; Part IV: Islamic Philosophical Thought and the Akromism Controversy; Part V: The Rhetoric of Exile and Insurgency; Bibliography; and Index. All four parts start with an introduction, follow by original Uzbek text that was scanned or re-keyed, and English translation.
