Islam is a dynamic religious, cultural, and political force in Russia today. Muslims make up at least 8.6 percent of Russia's population. Greater numbers of Muslims live in the neighboring territories of the Middle Volga, the Caucasus, and Central Asia, which were once part of the Russian Empire and, later, the Soviet Union. This book explores the history of Islam as a religion and civilization in Russia. It discusses the diverse Muslim ethnic groups of Russia and where they live, the Russian state's policies toward its Muslim citizens, and the political, social, cultural, and economic problems confronting the Muslims of Russia today.
