The Caucasus, 13 Aug. 2013
The people who live in the Caucasus be it the Circassians or the Chechens amongst others have a remarkable story to be told, the author Oliver Bullough with his contacts in the region and his many years of journalism reporting from there tells us about the struggle, the wars that these defiant people have had to go through. Although written from his own viewpoint and for that Russia in the past or Putin in the present isn't looked favourably upon he has made the Caucasus and it's peoples history a great read. Recommended.
