Stefan Kirmse explores what this means for the everyday lives of the city’s young people. By focusing on the myriad ways in which young Muslims experience globalization, this book offers an alternative to the standard sensationalist accounts of post-Soviet Central Asia that discuss the region in terms of an “Islamic threat,” political instability, and inter-ethnic strife.
