This is a well written book giving a history of the Caucasian insurrection against Russian colonialism and then recently in the Chechen war of the 90's. His sources are restricted to the main authorities on the subject and the rest of the book follows personal travels through post breakup SSR. A good book, but there are far more authoritative and detailed books on the subject- Gammer/ Broxup/ Baddeley for starters. So in the end it will probably be one of those books you may pick up by chance because you don't know about other texts in the field.
