The Russians established themselves in Samarkand and Tashkent, while Bukhara remained a center of Muslim culture. A Bukharan revellion was suppressed in 1870.
In 1884, American cotton was introduced into the area. In 1888 the TRANS-CASPIAN RAILROAD reached Samarkand. In 1909 the YOUNG BUKHARAN movement was founded, inspired by the Young Turks.
