Abstract

The contemporary global preoccupation with "terror" and the destructive Chechen wars of the past decade should encourage politicians and commentators to examine the historical background to contemporary Russian-Chechen relations. In this review essay, Austin Jersild explores a series of issues posed by recent writers, such as the policies and attitudes of Vladimir Putin, Chechen identity and memory, Russian representations of Chechens, American foreign policy, human rights and international law, military tactics, and interethnic relations in Groznyi, within the broader context of Russia's historic conquest and incorporation of the north Caucasus during the nineteenth century.
