Note 1. Introduction -- 2. The Identity of Russia's Muslims -- 3. Russia's Muslim Communities -- 4. Russia's Islamic Religious Institutions and the State -- 5. Islam and Security in Russia -- 6. Islam, Terrorism, and Revolution in Russia -- 7. The Role of Islam in Russia's Geopolitical View -- 8. Conclusion
This book offers a novel interpretation of Russian contemporary discourse on Islam and its influence on Russian state policies. It shifts the analytical perspective from the discussion about Russia's Islam as a potential security threat to a more comprehensive view of the relationships of Muslims with Russia as a state and a civilization. The work demonstrates how many Muslims increasingly express a sense of belonging to Russia and are increasingly willing to contribute to state building processes
