Islam in Post-Soviet Russia by Hilary Pilkington
Book DescriptionThis book, based on extensive original research in the field, analyses the political, social and cultural implications of the rise of Islam in post-Soviet Russia. Examining in particular the situation in Tatarstan and Dagestan, where there are large Muslim populations, the authors chart the long history of Muslim and orthodox Christian co-existence in Russia, discuss recent moves towards greater autonomy and the assertion of ethnic-religious identities which underlie such moves, and consider the actual practice of Islam at the local level, showing the differences between "official" and "unofficial" Islam, how ceremonies and rituals are actually observed (or not), how Islam is transmitted from one generation to the next, the role of Islamic thought, including that of radical sects, and Islamic views of men and women's different roles. Overall, the book demonstrates how far Islam in Russia has been extensively influenced by the Soviet and Russian multi-ethnic context.

Migration, Displacement and Identity in Post-Soviet Russia, Paperback (December 1997)
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, 25 million ethnic Russians have found themselves constituting a politically and culturally diplaced "Russian minority", scattered throughout the newly independent states. This text explores the impact that these "minorities" have had on post-Soviet Russia.
