Unfinished Revolution: The Muslim Press in Russia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper traces the growth of the Muslim press in Russia, its consolidation, and its survival during the Soviet Period, followed by its revival in the early 1990s. Although by no means comprehensive in scope, it is a necessary step in beginning to shed light on this under-researched topic. These unique publishing cultures represent outlets for freedom of expression, even in controlled cultural spaces, and document the intellectual protest among Muslim communities in Russia. Understanding the contributions of various Muslim publishing centres is critical to gaining a broader view of Russian and Soviet Studies.
