Description - The Chechen Wars by Matthew Evangelista
In the wake of September 11, Moscow has called its military occupation of Chechnya an "anti-terrorist operation" in an effort to deflect criticisms of the widespread human rights abuses and atrocities associated with it. In this book, Matthew Evangelista challenges Moscow's justifications for the Chechen invasions by exploring the sources of both wars and the implications for Russia's internal coherence and international standing.
