The struggle for Chechnya has come to international prominence in recent years through a string of high-profile atrocities, such as the hostage seizures at Beslan and the Dubrovka theatre, Moscow. For the first time, Western, Russian and Chechen perspectives on the conflict are brought together in a single, authoritative new volume, in which leading experts from all sides of the crisis provide a unique insight into its causes and contexts. Chechnya: from the Past to the Future provides a historical framework against which it considers the most pressing issues raised by the struggle. These include: the rights and wrongs of Chechen secessionism; the role of Islamic and Western international agencies in defending human rights; the conduct of the war; changing perceptions of the war against the backdrop of international terrorism; democracy in Chechnya itself and the uncertain fate of democracy in Russia as a whole.
