Description
 
Anatol Lieven (au); Heidi Bradner (ph). The war between Russia & the Chechen forces, from Dec. 1994 to Aug. 1996, was a key moment in Russian history, shedding a stark light on the end of Russia as a great mil. & imperial power. Sets Russia’s humiliation at the hands of a highly-motivated, yet tiny group of guerrillas in a plausible framework for the first time. Offers a riveting eyewitness account of the war itself & a sophisticated & multifaceted explanation of the Russian defeat. Explores the reasons for the current weakness of Russian nationalism both within the country & among the Russian diaspora. Examines the Chechen tradition & the character of the Chechen nation. Provides the first in-depth anthropological portrait in English of this extraordinary fighting people. Photos.
