"Sokol's recitation of events has a compelling clarity. In 180 pages, he conveys the flavor of a region, a historical snapshot of a massacre, and several important observations."

"Sokol carefully recreates events on the ground while relating some of the more instructive moments of the uprising... Sokol's account of the uprising—made possible by the publication of archival documents—remains topical and accurate."

"For me the tragedy of 1916 had always been a precursor to the national liberation movement of Kyrgyz people, although I did not realize the depth and reach of these events in the history of Central Asia. Edward Sokol's The Revolt of 1916 was a revelation. The author portrays the people of Central Asia, as well as the formation of their identity and their rights for self-determination, in the big picture and not through Soviet eyes. His book gives the reader a new perspective on these events and allows us to reconsider history."
