Muslims in Russia

From January 2 – February 2, 2008, the BU Libraries will be having a trial of IDC Publishers’ “Muslims in Russia” database. The direct link to the database is:
This collection introduces the uniquely varied and poorly explored Russian Muslim population during one of the most dynamic periods of their history (1861-1918). Materials published in Russia both at the center and on the periphery reflect the picturesque palette of life of Muslims in the Russian Empire, as well as the positions of their public and political figures. This collection presents works written by and about Muslims. The value of this heritage is especially clear now that the historical and spiritual past of Muslims in Russia is being actively reconsidered.
