Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in the book The Re-Islamization of Society and the Position of Women in Post-Soviet Uzbekistan. The politicization of women's issues in Uzbekistan does not take place in a vacuum, it has many similarities with the history of other post-colonial and transitional states in the Islamic world. Soviet orientalists and political scientists have devoted much study to an analysis of the post-colonial countries of the Islamic East. Ten years of Uzbek independence have noticeably changed the look of the state, but they have not cured it of all the ills of the past. In fact, these ills have become more serious, and are combined with the growing pains of the past years.

Keywords: Islamic world; Soviet orientalists; Uzbek independence
