Russian Rule in Samarkand 1868-1910

This chapter covers the earliest attempts to create a colonial administration in Samarkand after 1868. The principal effect of this was to expropriate a class of landholders/tax officials known as Amlakdars, and instead the Russians sought to recreate local elites at the village level, with unpredictable results. This stands in stark contrast to British policy throughout most of India, where securing the co-operation of aristocratic elites was a fundamental tactic of Imperial rule.
