The first part of this book, discussing the Soviet Union's own Muslims and the problems they represent for the country's future, contains much solid meat. The second part is a series of historical and contemporary studies on Soviet relations with a number of Islamic countries; one of them, having little to do with Islam, is an interesting piece on the Syrian Communist Party. The general level of scholarship is high.
