"Islamization and Native Religion in the Golden Horde:  Baba Tukles  and Conversion to Islam in Historical and Epic Tradition" by Devin Deweese, PA: Pennsylvania State University Press, 1994

The book traces the many echoes of a single conversion narrative through six centuries, the previously unknown recounting of the dramatic "contest" in which the khan Özbek adopted Islam at the behest of a Sufi saint named Baba Tükles. Not only does this study deepen our understanding of the peoples of Central Asia, involved in so much turmoil today, but it also provides a model for other scholars to emulate in looking at the process of Islamization and communal religious conversion in general as it occurred elsewhere in the world.
