Abstract

Through a discussion of recent literature on early Soviet Central Asia and the use of archival material, the essay sheds light on politically legitimate discourses used in Central Asia from the revolution to the creation of administrative units based on ethnic criteria (1924). The focus is on the shifts in the accepted national catego- ries and the derivative nature of the «national discourse» used at different moments and at different levels in the administration. The article also provides a contextualization of this specific discourse within Soviet transformative policies of local economy and society.
