Jahangir Mamatov

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.
