Mas, untuk Gejolak Islam di Rusia:

Dalam sepuluh tahun pertama setelah Uni Soviet bubar, negeri-negeri Muslim di Asia Tengah menggali kembali peradaban Islam yang membentuk mereka sejak abad-abad awal kelahiran Islam hingga keruntuhan Ottoman Turki di penghujung Perang Dunia Pertama.

Di tahun ke-20, giliran Rusia bersentuhan kembali dengan Islam yang di masa lalu sedikit banyak juga ikut membangun peradaban mereka. Manuskrip M. Aji Surya ini adalah bagian dari rekaman dinamika peradaban Islam di Rusia dan negeri-negeri di sekitarnya yang bertautan dengan unsur-unsur lain yang membentuk identitas Rusia di tengah konstelasi dunia yang terus berubah.

In the first ten years after the breaking up of the Soviet Union, Muslim countries in Central Asia revived Islamic civilization which formed them since the early centuries of the birth of Islam until the fall of the Ottoman Turks at the end of World War One.

It is 20 years after that, Russia has turned back into contact with Islam that in the past to some extent also helped build their civilization. M. Aji Surya’s manuscript is a part of dynamics records of Islamic civilization in Russia and surrounding countries. It shows how those civilizations are intertwined with other elements that make up the identity Russia in the middle of the changing world.
