The war in Chechnya left us with some of the most harrowing
images in recent times: a modern European city bombed to ruins
while its citizens cowered in bunkers; mass graves; mothers combing
the hills for their missing sons.
The product of investigative and on-the-scene reporting by two
established journalists, Carlotta Gall and Thomas de Waal's
captivating book recounts the story of the Chechens' violent
struggle for independece, and the Kremlin politics that
precipitated it. Exploring Chechnya's complex and bloody history,
the work is also a portrait of Russia's failed attempt to make the
transition to a democratic society.
"A harrowing glimpse into the destabilization caused by the
collapse of the Soviet Union and the troubled road to independence
and democracy faced by its non-Russian members."
