Subject: An Anthropological Look at Muslim Youth in Tajikistan
Dear Professor Popplestone,
> Westview Press
is proud to present the new Westview Case Studies in Anthropology
publication, Muslim Youth: Tensions and Transitions in Tajikistan by
Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, the peoples of Central Asia have
been exposed to new, Western influences that stress individualism at the
expense of familial and communal traditions. Young men in particular are
exposed to new ideas and lifestyles as they travel in large numbers
outside their native republics for the first time. Throughout the book,
emblematic life stories vividly portray the hopes and concerns of these
Tajiks, teasing out the complexity of modernity versus tradition, and
individualism versus collectivism.
