An article collection of one of the most outstanding Kazakh intellectuals Mustafa Shokai was published in France. The book presentation was held in Paris. The new edition is the result of the long-term research of historian Abdiuakap Kara. During almost 20 years of emigration, Mustafa Shokai wrote hundreds of articles, 120 of them are in French. The part of these works was included into the collection. The book caused a great zest among researchers even before the publication, since the life and work of Turkistan Autonomy leader hasn’t been studied completely yet.
“We haven’t translated the articles from French for researchers and worshippers of his works to understand him better. We have collected and published original version for people to read Mustafa Shokai’s works untranslated and uncensored. The book in French is an opportunity for European readers to get to know Mustafa Shokai,” said Abdiuakap Kara, PhD in history, Mimar Sinan University professor.
