"On their merits individually, and taken as a whole, the contributions in this volume will be of great interest to scholars of Soviet history, the Cold War, contemporary Islam, and academic politics. Kemper and Kalinovsky have set the agenda for scholarly discussions of Orientalism for the near future."
Eren Tasar, University of North Carolina

"On the whole, the book makes a compelling argument for the need to take into account the global dynamics of the Cold War in order to understand the development of Soviet Oriental studies and, in particular, the paradox why a discipline that after 1917 was 'officially called upon to transform from a tool of oppression into an instrument of liberation' turned into a more effective instrument of politics and state power than had been the case before the revolution." Matthias Battis, St. Petersburg
