The work is performed within the frames of the Program of fundamental researchers of the History Section of the Department of Historical and Philological Sciences (RAS) “Historical experience of social transformations and conflicts”. The book presents the materials of Tajikistan mass media from June 1997 till January 2002. They include surveys, articles, official announcements, documents and other information published by mass media. These materials were collected during 1997 – 2002. Unfortunately, not all of them, for different reasons, have been preserved: part of them has been lost. Nevertheless, our colleague from Tajikistan H. Mumijanov managed to get the notion about the form of transformations in the country, which passed its way from military conflict and civil war to national reconciliation, about a difficult period of post-conflict development attended by periodical outbursts of tension on the local level. Basing on these surveys, one can get additional valuable information about the development of political system in Tajikistan in the mentioned period and come to know about processes in its social and economic spheres and international relations. The inclusion in academic circulation of this publication, being a vivid evidence of the events happened in Tajikistan, gives the reader a possibility to get acquainted with new sources of modern history of the Republic of Tajikistan.
