The assumption that the Central Asian states would, on independence, fall under the sway of fanatical Muslim clergy subject to the dictates of neighbouring Iran has so far proved less than accurate. In fact, there has been a far greater religious diversity in the region than was first anticipated. This apparent misconception as to the monolithic nature of Islam in Central Asia has been largely due to the scarcity of information under the closed Soviet system, and the peripheral status of the region of the geo-political calculations of the West. Mehrdad Haghayeghi's book offers a more sophisticated understanding of the dynamics of Islam in these loosely interrelated republics.
