Islam and Christianity inspired by Kazakh steppe nomads, university academic claims. In the book Professor Zakiryanov explains how generations of steppe nomads, including Genghis Khan, have helped shape the language, culture and populations of Asia, Europe, the Middle East and America through migrations taking place over millennia. Professor Zakiryanov presents highly accessible yet detailed research, demonstrating clear links between the linguistic and cultural roots of great civilisations and religions both past and present, and the language and societal innovations brought about by wave after wave of Turkic nomads travelling both West and East.History is shaped by the victors, but after the collapse of the Soviet Union new attempts are being made to recover historical and ethnographical detail that previous empires swept aside. After reading the result of years of research by Professor Zakiryanov you will look again at language and culture, and see the living histories they represent.Nazarbayev replaced Kolbin, who despite his office had little authority in Kazakhstan, on 22 June 1989.He was Chairman of the Supreme Soviet (head of state) from 22 February to 24 April 1990. Nazarbayev was elected President of Kazakhstan by the Supreme Soviet on 24 April. He supported Russian President Boris Yeltsin against the attempted coup in August 1991 by Soviet hardliners. The Soviet Union disintegrated following the failed coup, though Nazarbayev was highly concerned with maintaining the close economic ties between Kazakhstan and Russia. He won the 1991 presidential election on 1 December, winning 91.5% of the vote in an election in which no other candidate ran against him.On 21 December, he signed the Alma-Ata Protocol, thereby taking Kazakhstan into the Commonwealth of Independent States.
