Imperial Russia's Muslims offers an exploration of social and cultural change among the Muslim communities of Central Eurasia from the late eighteenth century through to the outbreak of the First World War. Drawing from a wealth of Russian and Turkic sources, Mustafa Tuna surveys the roles of Islam, social networks, state interventions, infrastructural changes and the globalization of European modernity in transforming imperial Russia's oldest Muslim community: the Volga-Ural Muslims. Shifting between local, imperial and transregional frameworks, Tuna reveals how the Russian state sought to manage Muslim communities, the ways in which both the state and Muslim society were transformed by European modernity, and the extent to which the long nineteenth century either fused Russia's Muslims and the tsarist state or drew them apart. The book raises questions about imperial governance, diversity, minorities, and Islamic reform, and in doing so proposes a new theoretical model for the study of imperial situations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In Imperial Russia's Muslims: Islam, Empire, and European Modernity, 1788-1914, Mustafa Tuna provides us with a thorough discussion of the worlds of Muslims in central Russia, from the establishment of the first Imperial Muftiate by Catherine the Great in 1788 to roughly World War I. This well-written monograph is an attempt to rethink the complex situation of Muslims in a non-Muslim empire by introducing the concept of domains ...' Vladimir Bobrovnikov, The American Historical Review
'Tuna's book is a thought-provoking work and a valuable contribution to a vibrant field of studies of Russian Muslim societies, as well as a part of a growing appreciation for cross-regional phenomena in the study of empire.' Elena I. Campbell, Slavic Review
