Text cited in article[edit]

I am assuming that the cited text Lubin, Nancy. "Early history". In Curtis. refers to: "Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan: Country Studies (Area Handbook Series)" Edited by Glenn E. Curtis, Publication Date: November 12, 1997, ISBN-10: 0844409383, ISBN-13: 978-0844409382, Edition: 1st ed?

Not only has it been used here, but copiously in History of Uzbekistan, and Uzbeks. The name of the chapter(?) is unknown and no pages numbers have been provided. In the context, I find it difficult to feel convinced that it is a genuine citation. For the moment, I'm tagging it for page number/s. Hopefully, someone can assist me further with this difficult-to-obtain text. If it isn't properly sourced, I'm sorely tempted to remove it. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 00:51, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Iranian Nomads[edit]

This article provides uncited references to the possibility of Iranian nomads arriving in Uzbekistan but provide no sources for citation. Furthermore they are stated as coming from Kazakhstan which isn't known for any strong Iranian affiliation, but rather a kurgan or barrow building people perhaps associated with the Fedorovo or Scythian culture. If so this should be changed to kurgan nomads in order to soften the conspicuous inaccuracy.Grathmy (talk) 21:58, 12 November 2014 (UTC)grathmy

The Uzbekistan website uses the term 'Indo-Iranians' on their 'History' section. And a Russian Archaeologist, Kuzmina, wrote about 'Indo-Iranians' in her recently updated book. Maybe an edit to 'Indo-Iranian' might be appropriate? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:31, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Intention to edit[edit]

3world Kid (talk) 11:30, 25 February 2015 (UTC) I just wanted to let those interested know that I intend to place a note on the Haiti Republic page regarding Haiti's statistics on the global issue of modern slavery. I believe the edit to be objective and in the interests of futhering human rights in Haiti. Should there be objections on the basis of undue weight or similar, please let me know.

3rdWorldkid This page is to talk about about the Uzbekistan page. I think you have the wrong page! Face-wink.svg 220 of Borg 08:27, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Jews in Uzbekistan[edit]

This article states that "According to local traditions Jews began to settle in the area 2,000 years ago after the exile from the kingdom of Israel by the Babylonians" but this doesn't quite make sense and is unsourced. The Babylonian exile was about 600 BC, and the Romans expelled the Jews around 70 AD. Based on the wording it is probably referring to the former. However, the Babylonian empire ceased to exist in the 500s BC. The Kingdom of Israel however was destroyed by the Assyrians prior to the Babylonian exile, it was the Kingdom of Judah that was exiled. Anyway, this should be clarified and sourced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:16, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
