History, Politics, and the Emergence of Shamanism in Transbaikalia
Ist es möglich, den Schamanismus zu historisieren oder soll er weiterhin zu den "schriftlosen" Traditionen gehören, die sich außerhalb der Geschichtsschreibung entwickelt haben? Dieser Kernfrage geht Piotr Sobkowiak nach und zeigt anhand einer detaillierten Analyse von wenig bekannten historischen Quellen in den Originalsprachen auf, dass der Schamanismus in der Mongolei und Südsibirien doch über eine Geschichte im herkömmlichen Sinn verfügt. Die Monographie zeichnet den etwa dreihundertjährigen Verlauf der Auseinandersetzungen zwischen traditionellen Lebensweisen und neuen religionspolitischen Strömungen nach, die einheimische Praktiken in Frage stellten. Aus diesem Spannungsfeld wurde der burjatische Schamanismus als eine eigenständige religiöse Tradition Südsibiriens im neunzehnten Jahrhundert konstituiert.

The Inner Asia book series is published in association with the Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit (MIASU), Cambridge. MIASU was founded in 1986 as a group within the Department of Social Anthropology to promote research and teaching relating to Mongolia and Inner Asia on an interdisciplinary basis. The unit aims to promote and encourage study of this important region within and without the University of Cambridge, and to provide training and support for research to all those concerned with its understanding.
Together with the Inner Asia journal, the book series provides a research-oriented forum in which scholars can address the contemporary and historical problems of the region.

One of the most important landslides in recent World History has been the fall of the Soviet Union. Though its consequences are felt everywhere, once again in its long history Central or Inner Asia, given its many religious, economical, and historical backgrounds and identities, will play an important role in the formation of a new balance in Asia. It is exactly the history, literature, religion, arts, economy and politics of these Inner Asian cultures and societies that Brill's Inner Asian Library series will be dedicated to.
The peer-reviewed series aims at furthering our understanding of Inner Asia and enabling us to better cope with the problems past, present and future connected with this region.

The series published an average of two volumes per year over the last 5 years.

Texts, Traditions and Practices, 10th-21st Centuries
Memory and Commemoration across Central Asia: Texts, Traditions and Practices, 10th-21st Centuries is a collection of fourteen studies by a group of scholars active in the field of Central Asian Studies, presenting new research into various aspects of the rich cultural heritage of Central Asia (including Afghanistan). By mapping and exploring the interaction between political, ideological, literary and artistic production in Central Asia, the contributors offer a wide range of perspectives on the practice and usage of historical and religious commemoration in different contexts and timeframes. Making use of different approaches – historical, literary, anthropological, or critical heritage studies, the contributors show how memory functions as a fundamental constituent of identity formation in both past and present, and how this has informed perceptions in and outside Central Asia today.
