    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    In Tajikistan, the Soviets used inherent Tajik ideological, regional, and ethnic conflicts to move their affairs forward. In 1992, after enduring Soviet imposition for seventy years, the Tajiks reversed the process and toppled the Soviet power structure in Tajikistan. The volume traces the development of the conflict using primary Tajik sources.
