This unique anthology documents the rediscovery of history that is establishing a foundation for current political action and cultural revival in the Turkic regions (including Azerbaijan and the Volga) of the former Soviet Union. Translated from original languages and carefully annotated, these seminal materials are essential reading for those whose familiarity with Central Asian political and philosophical traditions has heretofore been restricted to Russian sources. Included are such classics as Z.V. Togan's The Origins of the Kazaks and Ozbeks and Akcuraoglu Yusuf's Three Policies, and recent writings such as Muhammad Ali's Let Us Learn Our Heritage and Ayaz Malikov's The Question of the Turk, as well as contemporary documents from the region.About the Author:
